Friends of Gillespie County Country Schools

10-’16:  from Lubbockite Dona Richardson about one of her “Danz” relatives:  L.B.J. State Park Historic Site | Blog | Anthony Whitt     Hundreds of hopeful German immigrants traveled to the Texas Hill Country in 1845.  Johann “Casper” Danz was one of these early settlers. He suffered the tragedy of losing his first wife and son to an epidemic soon after they arrived. His second bride died in childbirth before he married his third wife, Johanne Dorthea Bock, and they built this cabin in 1860. It was at this location that the family lived in this two-room (dogtrot) cabin and flourished with eleven children. Their descendants remained on the homestead until 1966 when the land became part of the Lyndon Baines Johnson State Park and Historical Site.

Country school teachers taught good study habits – good habits for life: make a plan, gather material, set a goal, go to work, and stay on task until you get the job done! My country school teacher, Miss Clara, would give the Friends of Gillespie County Country Schools an “A” for following those rules.
