Biographical History

John F. (J.F. or John) Miller (1798-1854), a Scottish immigrant who settled in Texas in the 1820s, served as justice of the peace and chief justice of Colorado County in the 1840s. He owned property, slaves, and stock in the Colorado Navigation Company. John and his wife, Lucinda (née Jefferson), an emancipated slave, had thirteen children. Their daughter Leonora married Edgar B. (Edgar or Ed) Obenchain, a business partner of her brother George Forrester (G.F.) Miller. Edgar and Leonora Obenchain's children include sons Carl and Edgar, and daughters Martha (Mattie), wife of William Thaddeus (W.T.) Wall, and Lu (sometimes Lou or Lula), who was married first to an Alderman and later to a Triche. W.T. and Martha Wall's daughters were Lenore and Hilda Wall.

W.T. Wall's sister, Sarah Evelyn Wall McHenry (Evie), had a daughter, Fay McHenry, who married Cleveland Guinn (sometimes Guynn or Gwynn). Cleveland Guinn was the grandson of Dilue Rose Harris, who fled during the Runaway Scrape as a child. W.T. and Sarah Evelyn's mother, Octavia Wright Wall, was the daughter of Sarah Anne Pigford Wright, daughter of Elizabeth and Timothy Pigford.

Henry Marshall (Henry M. or Henry) Elmore (1816-1879) was a Civil War colonel who commanded a regiment of Texas Volunteers at the Port of Galveston. Henry Elmore was the son of John Archer Elmore, a Revolutionary War veteran after whom an Alabama county is named. Henry Elmore was married to Elizabeth Fitzpatrick Elmore (1816-1859) and together they had five children who lived to adulthood. Henry and Elizabeth moved to Walker County, Texas in 1853. Henry Elmore's daughter, Elizabeth Tabitha (Lizzie) (1846-1923) married Dr. Henry L. Rugeley (1838-1925).

Dr. Henry L. Rugeley was one of the twenty-one children fathered by John Rugeley (1792-1878) with his first wife, Parthenon Irvin, who died in 1831, and with his second wife, Eliza Clapton Colon. John Rugeley was a captain in the Texas army, served in the Seventh and Eighth Congresses of the Republic of Texas, and was a representative at the Secession Convention in January 1861. James Rugeley, another of son of John Rugeley, died in the sinking of a vessel in Matagorda Bay during the Civil War.

Dr. Henry L. Rugeley attended Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia. With his wife, Elizabeth, he had several children, including a daughter, Elmore, who married Frank Hawkins. Frank Hawkins' father, John Boyd Hawkins, founded the J.B. Hawkins Ranch, a large plantation community in Hawkinsville, Texas that Frank would come to manage.

Dr. Henry L. Rugeley and Elizabeth Rugeley also had a son, Rowland, who married Lenore Wall (Daughty), daughter of Martha Obenchain Wall. Rowland Rugeley ran the Rugeley Motor Company of Bay City, Texas that existed from the 1930s until it was destroyed by fire in 1982. Rowland and Lenore Rugeley's daughter, Martha Lenore Rugeley, married Richard C. Bachman, and possessed this collection. After her death, her son Richard C. Bachman, Jr., donated the collection to the Texas State Library and Archives Commission. Richard C. Bachman Sr.'s grandfather, Jacob Bachman, owned the J. Bachman Grocery in Bay City, Texas from 1915 until the store closed in the 1950s.

Scope and Contents of the Collection

The Richard Bachman collection documents the personal and professional lives of early Texas landowners and small business-owning families. The collection spans from 1825 to 1983, with some undated material. The bulk of the material dates from 1840 to 1920, covering the westward expansion of the United States, the Texas Revolution, the Civil War, and Reconstruction. Records pertain to seven branches of the donor's family: Rugeley, Miller, Elmore, Obenchain, Wall, Hawkins, and Bachman. The Miller, Rugeley, Elmore, and Obenchain families are most thoroughly documented.

The bulk of the manuscript collection is correspondence; other materials included are legal documents such as deeds, land grants, wills and testaments; and financial documents such as receipts, invoices, tax statements, and inventories of property and goods. There are also family announcements, news clippings, memorabilia, and ephemera. Photographs in the collection include daguerreotypes, ambrotypes, cartes-de-visite (CDVs), cabinet cards, tintypes, photographic postcards, and silver gelatin prints.

Much of the Miller family papers relates to early Texas life, both personally and professionally. They include John Miller's passport (1837) and certificate of Texas citizenship (1836), a rare early Texas proclamation signed by Republic President Anson Jones granting land to Miller, and a certificate of stock and bylaws of the Colorado Navigation Company (1850). The series also contains many receipts, including slave receipts (1863, undated), documentation of the Millers' cotton sales, and receipts regarding G.F. Miller's business dealings with Edgar Obenchain.

The Elmore family papers include family Bible records, correspondence among family members, and original documents concerning the naming of an Alabama county after the family (1850s-1920s). Other documents pertain to the Battle of Galveston, including a notebook with the field notes of Alfred Miller Lea (1863), who is of no known relation to the family.

The Rugeley family papers are comprised mostly of correspondence. The letters discuss the Civil War, the early years of Matagorda County, and the daily life of the family. There are also records of the Rugeley Motor Company of Bay City, Texas (1930s-1980s), owned by Rowland Rugeley.

The Obenchain-Wall family papers are primarily comprised of the correspondence and legal documents of Edgar Obenchain, including records of his business relationship with G.F. Miller; and that of his sisters Martha (Mattie) Obenchain Wall and Lu Obenchain Alderman Triche, and his granddaughters, Hilda and Lenore Wall. Hilda and Lenore's inheritance from their aunt Lu and their mother Martha is included.

General papers include an early Texas Rand McNally map (1880s), a rare early Texas proclamation signed by Republic President Anson Jones, and two broadsides. One broadside, dated August 28, 1845, declares a vote to be held the twelfth of October on the adoption of a new constitution, an ordinance regarding colonization contracts, and the annexation of Texas. The other broadside calls for the re-opening of the Texas Land Office after the Texas Archives War. Included in this series is the Rugeley family Bible, originally owned by Elizabeth Rugeley and dating from 1865, the year of her marriage. The Bible held photographs, newspaper clippings, and family history information. Finally, this series also comprises a selection of clippings pertaining to the J. Bachman Grocery store.

Photographs encompass nearly 130 years of family history and include cased ambrotypes and daguerreotypes, loose and cased tintypes, cartes-de-visite (CDVs), cabinet photographs (cabinet cards), mounted and unmounted studio portraits and snapshots, photographic postcards, diffusion transfer prints (Polaroids), charcoal prints, and modern copy prints. The decorative cased photographs are examples of early photographic processes, and the Victorian cabinet card album demonstrates the family's interest in assembling their pictorial history. The wide variety of early Texas photography studios represented help document that profession in this early time period.
