Purpose of the study. The purpose of this study was to present the history of Brazoria County in a manner which furnishes background material for teachers in the upper elementary grades. Materials presenting a comprehensive study of Brazoria County are not available in a form that can be readily obtained by teachers in the elementary grades. Procedures employed. Primary and secondary materials on the subject were located, examined, read, and evaluated. The data used were found in history books of Texas, in Court House Records, in diaries and journals of early settlers, in newspaper accounts, in unpublished manuscripts, and in other printed materials. Where possible, printed matter was verified as authentic. Personal interviews provided another source of information.
