Thanks, Russell. One more piece to the puzzle. The data I have came from a tombstone. I live in Kerr so will work on this locally. The Kerrville High school is named for Tivy as is the Hill he is buried on. In 1837, Joseph A. Tivy and his two sisters came to Texas from Canada. In the 1860s, Tivy fought in the Civil War. Tivy became a surveyor, rancher, Texas ranger, and served in the Texas Legislature. In 1889, Tivy served as the first mayor of Kerrville. During his term in office he gave land for a public school. This is data from a student project. Tivy may have been a Yankee. The Ranger duty will not be two hard. Trying to find out if he deserves the Confederate grave. There is also some confusion as to ownership of the grave site.
