A Guide to the Thomas G. Morehead Papers, 1803-1992
Thomas Garnett Morehead retired from the U.S. Army at the rank of colonel and resided in San Antonio, Texas.
Consisting of material gathered as part of genealogical research, the Thomas G. Morehead papers focus on the Garnett family, particularly the family of William Garnett, who died in defense of the Alamo in 1836.
Included in the papers are photocopies from published biographical and genealogical sources, legal documents photocopied from county land and probate records, notes, and printed material. The majority of the sources are related to the Garnett family in Missouri and Texas, with some documents from Virginia. A few newspaper clippings are also part of the papers.
