Updated July 12, 2005

Edit Your Page

William Rufus Spurlin came to Texas between 1845 and 1850, tracking the killer of his father, James Spurlin of Hot Springs Arkansas. Finding the murderer already hung in Texas as a horse theif, W. R. settled in Jefferson, TX. From Jefferson, he ran a freight line to Austin, TX for a while before moving to Brookhaven, TX.

This home page covers the story of his descendants. Further information on his father, James Spurlin, would be appreciated, and I can be reached at the email address noted on this site.
