Many stories connect people in far away places with the history of Seguin, beginning from the early days of statehood to modern times. And there have been many final letters sent during foreign wars that arrive after the deaths of loved ones.

A farewell letter, written in his own blood to his wife, ended the final chapter of a Seguinite’s ancestor who had played a leading role in drawing up Texas’ first Declaration of Independence.

Floyd McKee is a native of Seguin. He is a retired Air Force Colonel and eight of his ancestors were among the 33 Rangers that organized and developed Walnut Springs and Seguin.
