Dan - A Son of the Republic of Texas

After a lengthy process of providing stringent documentation, based upon my genealogical research, Dan received his card and certificate today, naming him a member of the Sons of the Republic of Texas (SRT). The SRT consists of members who are direct lineal descendants of those that settled the Republic of Texas prior to February 19, 1846, when Texas merged with the United States as the 28th state.

Dan's membership is based on his great-grandfather, John Henry Short, born in Washington County, Texas, on July 4, 1844.
