July 21, 1884
Cayton Erhard died in Bastrop. This veteran and prisoner of the Texan
Santa Fe Expedition was a native of Munich, Germany. He immigrated to
Texas in 1839 and joined the Santa Fe Expedition in 1841. He was taken prisoner by
Mexican troops and spent two years in Mexican prisons. Afterward, he was active in
organizing the government of Hays County, where he served as the first county clerk and
first postmaster. After Reconstruction he moved to Bastrop. There he was
elected judge and delegate to the Constitutional Convention of 1875. He later wrote
reminiscences of the Santa Fe Expedition for the San Marcos Free Press.
Erhard is buried in the Bastrop city cemetery.

Notorious outlaw Sam Bass was born in Indiana; his short and violent
life also ended on July 21, in 1878. Bass arrived in Texas in the fall of 1870
and, after trying his hand at a number of occupations, began robbing
stagecoaches and trains in 1877. In the spring of 1878, Bass and his gang robbed four
trains within twenty-five miles of Dallas. They did not get much money, but the
robberies aroused citizens, and the bandits were the object of a spirited chase
across North Texas by posses and a special company of Texas Rangers
headed by Junius Peak. Bass eluded his pursuers until one of his party turned informer.
In Round Rock on July 19 Bass and his men became engaged in a gun battle in
which he was wounded. The next morning he was found lying helpless in a
pasture north of town and was brought back to Round Rock.
He died there on July 21, his twenty-seventh birthday.
He was buried in Round Rock and soon
became the subject of cowboy song and story.

President Sam Houston relieved Commodore Edwin Moore
of command of the Texas Navy. Moore had clashed with Houston
over the navy's activities in support of Mexican rebels in the Yucatán.
Houston proclaimed the navy to be pirates and requested any friendly country
to capture the navy's ships and return them to Galveston.
Before this could happen, Moore returned voluntarily to Galveston,
whereupon Houston dishonorably discharged him without so much as a
court-martial. Moore appealed to the Congress of the Republic of Texas
and finally got a fair trial in August 1844, in which he was found
not guilty. In November 1843 the entire fleet was put up for auction,
though the people of Galveston, incensed at the thought of selling
the navy, prevented the submission of bids. Nevertheless, Moore's
July cruise marked the end of the operative career of the Texas Navy.

In 1913, Andrew McGrew, a one-legged black hobo died after falling off a freight train near Marlin, Texas. He was taken to a funeral home in Marlin and embalmed. When no one claimed his body, a traveling carnival purchased it and displayed McGrew as "The Amazing Petrified Man – the Eighth Wonder of the World." When the carnival folded in 1968, McGrew remained in storage until a Dallas widow, Elgie Pace, discovered him. She wanted to give him a decent burial but was unable to afford it, so she nicknamed him "Sam" and kept him in the basement of her home. In 1973, a black undertaker volunteered to give McGrew a funeral. Several months after he was buried here in Dallas, folk singer Don McLean wrote a song,The Legend of Andrew McGrew, and a headstone was purchased for his grave which reads, "Andrew McGrew, The Mummified Man. Born 1867, died 1913, buried 1973."

Violent clashes begin between Juan "Cheno" Cortina and Anglo
lawmen in and around Brownsville in the Lower Rio Grande Valley.

because he tried to protect their rights against unscrupulous Anglo opportunists.
Texas Rangers and federal troops eventually halted the so-called
"Cortina Wars" in 1875.

Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe de los Nacogdoches Mission

for the settlement of Nacogdoches.
