A RANGER'S TALE Jacks' Vendetta

Before 1820 most of what is now known as Texas was part of Spain. A fellow by the name of Moses Austin had secured approval from Spain to settle a massive land area in what was then called Tejas. (Teh´hass) His goal was to bring in three hundred immigrant families [history calls them "the Old 300"] to settle the area around the Brazos, San Bernard and Colorado Rivers.
But, things changed. Between 1820 and 1824 Mexico won its independence from Spain. Moses Austin died in 1821, but his son, Steven F. Austin inherited the land grant, and with certain conditions -- newcomers must learn the Mexican language, become citizens and accept the Catholic faith -- approval was received from the new Mexican Regime; he proceeded to bring families into Tejas, to fulfill his father's dream. These first legitimate immigrants were called Texians. The population grew exponentially, and in just three years’ time it reached almost two thousand.
The Mexican government told Austin that protection against the influx of the criminal element flowing in from Kansas, Oklahoma and elsewhere, and the native marauders {especially Comanche and Kiowa} was entirely on his shoulders; Mexico wouldn’t intercede.
In 1823, Austin hired ten men to act as a "Ranging" Police Force to protect his Texian residents from Indians and criminals, and to keep the peace in his "experimental colonies" -- thus, the legend of the Texas Rangers began.
By the end of 1835, the Texas Rangers had grown to become an official "Republic of Texas" force of over sixty men, made up of three divisions, and took part in the fight for independence against Mexico.
In March of 1836, Tejas declared itself an independent republic. There were fewer than eight thousand Mexicans now residing in this rough, unforgiving terrain, but over four times as many immigrants -- mostly U.S. citizens.
By this time, the Rangers were a hardened fighting force. They had earned a reputation that approached legendary among the citizenry, the Mexicans and the Indians. They received nationwide fame in the U.S. press, as news of their exploits, whether true or exaggerated, became widespread, effectively establishing the Rangers as part of American folklore.
