    I'm originally from Toledo Ohio and I do know that before the name Toledo came into play, the original name for it was Frogtown. (Found that to be very interesting!) And I live in the great state of Texas now and we are the only state allowed to fly our flag the same height as the American flag. :-)

    well my ancestors helped bring the first 300 colonists to Texas. Stephen Fuller Austin is known as the Father of Texas and his Father,Moses who originally started that movement, is known as the GrandFather of Texas. Both have plaques at the State Capital in Austin,Tx.
