Post subject:  More from the Lacy family - Helen Lacy Gibbs oral history

We just received a transcript of Helen Lacy Gibbs oral history from the Burnet County Genealogical Society. Helen was the granddaughter of George Washington Lacy and her father used Lacys daily on their ranch in Marble Falls. We will also be adding a tape of this interview to our archives.

More details on Lacy family history, including all the places the family lived between leaving Kentucky in 1853 and the brothers arriving in Burnet County between 1858 and 1860, coming soon.

It's been the subject of debate as to what and how these dogs were used..I reckon Helen cleared that up ;)

It's interesting there is no mention of the tri-colored Lacy "Hog" Dog, and equally as interesting that the
family it's self referred to the breed as the Lacy Hog Dog (Not the "Blue" Lacy)

Also the fact that she says the dogs were breed in Ten., I had heard tale that they were bred in Kentucky and then tale that they were first bred here in Burnet County. Between the letters Frank wrote home from France and some old articles about the family in our local papers some years ago, I knew they had spent time in Ten. before settling down in the Texas Hill Country. More little pieces falling into place ;)
What an amazing puzzle this breed is turning out to be :))

This post brings back a lot of memories. I worked at granite mt. for some time and have been in that old stockade. It was all cut by convict labor. It is 85ft. long and shaped to a tee. I also went to school in that old granite school house.

Michael & I had classes in the old Granite building as well :)) That old building has seen many generations now.
You know my Daddy worked at Granite Mt. years ago with my uncle and they told us kids about the "tunnel"
we thought they were full of it! Which they may well have been as far as the "haunted" version they told us :))

Makes me wonder if the lacy has mountain cur in them because lots of mountain curs do come from the East? Makes sense to me because most mountain curs I see or read about aren't big dogs. Only downside to them is some of them are either open or semi-open on track and some bloodlines aren't. They do have blue color in 'em as Julie has some pictures of them...

It is neat to see what she has to say.
