Alfred Evans’ new book 19th Century Sailors and Soldiers of Comanche County placed third in a competition sponsored by the Texas State Genealogical Society’s Annual Book Fair. The category was Non-Professionals / Reference and this was the second time Alfred’s books have been selected by the TSGS for an award. The highest ranking officer in the book was Thomas Frost, Commander of the Frontier Battalions during the U.S Civil War. Later, Mr. Frost moved to San Antonio and established a bank known as the Frost Bank. Both Comanche and San Antonio share the honor of recognizing Thomas Frost as their most outstanding citizen and veteran. Another of Comanche’s other outstanding citizen and veteran was Dr. Robert T. Hill. He is called the Father of Texas Geology. No one else comes close to these two outstanding men of Comanche, Texas. Editor’s note: We have 19th Century Sailors and Soldiers of Comanche County available for purchase at The Comanche Chief’s Little Book Store.
