Nancy McLarry and Margaret Fields will be the speakers at the first meeting of the year for the Genealogy Society of Kendall County at 10:30 a.m. on Jan. 17 at the library in Boerne. McLarry is the President of the Burleson Family Association and Fields is the Vice President (Social). They will speak on "The Burlesons...A Story of Texas." The Burlesons were one of the first families to come into Texas with Stephen F. Austin and were active in the settling of Texas. General Edward Burleson led the battle of San Jacinto, was Vice-President of the Republic of Texas and was instrumental in laying out the city of Austin. Their family stories include General Burleson's efforts to make Austin the capital of Texas.
