George Wilkins Kendall was born in 1809 and lived an adventurous and accomplished life as a war correspondent, author, Texas Ranger, and Pioneer Texas Sheepman. Kendall County, Texas is named for him. He traveled our young country working at various newspapers and ultimately founded The New Orleans Picayune. Kendall was a vocal proponent of Texas independence from Mexico and the Western expansion movement. He was in the thick of Texas’ Independence being wounded in battle and eventually captured and marched 2,000 miles to a Mexico City prison. After the war, Kendall took an overdue European sabbatical where he met his beloved wife Adeline in Paris. He sailed back to raise a family with her on the most beautiful ranch in the Texas, Hill Country. He rests today in The Boerne Cemetery. He was by any measure – Larger Than Life
