Over the years, Davis (and his descendants) sold most of the 3,154 acres he was granted; however, the Davis family cemetery, a Texas Historical Cemetery, is in Allandale.

Market Musings, From the Desk of Mark Sprague, State Director of Information Capitol @Independence Title

Mr. Sprague also took us to see the Real-Life Documentary HOOP DREAMS, when we were kids. It was a stellar flick. Market Musings (Greater Austin Area) Posted on  April 16, 2020 Mark Sprague, State Director of Information Capital Here’s an update on some recent questions I’ve been considering, with input and feedback from much wiser analysts/economists whose seminars I have been able to sit in on the last few weeks.
