H. Hutchings epoch which ended in 1854. He held many public offices during his lifetime."

    Notes 
    • "Why, as I recall, Neal McGaffey killed a beef and cut it up and sent it around to the ladies to cook. Everybody was asked to bake bread, biscuits, or cake, or anything they could. Increase Burch had a fine sweet potato patch; he began to dig potatoes and cook them. Mrs. Kate Dorman got into her buggy and with Mrs. (Sarah) Vosberg (Chasteen's future sister-in-law) accompanying her, they delivered food to the fort during the thick of the battle. By the time the battle was over, the soldiers met these ladies with refreshments and ate their first meal of the day. Everything was done to honor those brave men by the citizens of the Pass, and not only then, but for as long as they remained at the fort."
      ... 'Uncle Joe Chasteen...",  By W. T. Block; Reprinted from Beaumont ENTERPRISE, Feb. 5, 1984.  Based on Chasteen's memoirs in the Confederate veteran's column of Galveston "Daily News" in 1899. (http://www.wtblock.com/wtblockjr/unclejoe.htm )
