Thanks

Susan-

  If you are looking for a full scale bio of Hiram Granbury, I don't know of one.

  If a shorter bio will do, then the HANDBOOK OF TEXAS ONLINE is a good source for anyone having anything to do with Texas.

Handbook of Texas Online:

  Here is a short bio from the Granbury Chapter of the UDC.

GENERAL HIRAM BRINSON GRANBURY

  If you're interested in his genealogy:

Tom Holder, Family History, Hiram B. Granbury

 

  The Granbury- Gregg Connection:

7th Texas Generals Gregg and Granbury

  The sad fate of Fanny:

The Search For Fannie Sims Granbury

  Perhaps you'd like to visit Granbury:

Granbury a town with history and charm on the Lake in the Brazos River, Texas on 1st Traveler's Choice: Lodging Directory of ...

 

 And of course, his tombstone. The original had the name spelled wrong ("Granberry"). You can see it by accessing all of his pictures:

Defender thanks for the information.  I was hoping there was a book.  I love the Texas history on line.  I use it quite often for Trivia answers.  My great great grandfather is listed I believe .  Fletcher Davis.  Uncle Fletcher was a newspaper owner and editor in Honod Texas for many many years.  His daughter still lives in his home in Hondo.  She is in her 90's now. 

Hmm seems that is now two of the Generals who died at Franklin buried with mispelled names.  States' Rights Gist named is mispelled also.

  I was unaware that there were two that way. Gist one of those things, I guess. ;)

There is a bio of Granbury.  It is entitled Lone Star General and was written by Rebecca Drake and Thomas Holder.

Eric thanks sooooo much .  Figures you would know of a book about Granbury.  Defender , thanks for the website to purchase it.   To give Eric a plug if you haven't read his book For Cause & for Country it is a must read on the Battles of Franklin and Spring Hill.
