In 1834 when Texas was part of Mexico, several hundred small farmers, mostly from Co. Wexford emigrated to South Texas as part of a planned settlement. Thomas O’Connor, a lad of sixteen put together a farm of 750,000 acres before he died. Descendants of the original settlers still live in the area, and with Texas oil lying underneath their land, they are not short of the good things in life.
