I have just located your site. It has been a number of years since I was in your area. Family tradition has it that my gr gr grandfather-Elijah Anderson Bates- had a store at Fort Inge. A couple of days ago I found the Texas Muster Roll Index cards on Ancestry. Low and behold there were 2 regarding my ancester.One is for 1861 and one is for 1862. Looks like he transported goods etc during this time. He later founded the town of Batesville just south of you. Are there any for non-military persons at Fort Inge though he is listed as a Private in the sources I found? One of these days I'll make it back to your area.

I am a descendant of W.S.B. Owens, an early justice of the peace of Uvalde county and I believe some of the family were connected with Fort Inge. Would love to have current info on your organization, the web site was a little old. How can I get a look at the post records? Thanks, Ann K. Basham

....Greetings and salutations too y'all...My
friends , it has been many years since I visited
your very historic county and the remnants of the
old fort. I was at that time a member of the 2nd
Mounted Dragoon Detachment stationed at Fort Sam
Houston Texas , and performed a ceremony depicting
the return of the 2nd Dragoons to the fort. I
was commissioned an Honorary Colonel for this performance and was presented the commission by a
four star general and the Commander of Fort Sam
Houston. Thank you for the honor and kindness.
