early Matagorda memories: Havards, Rymans

The Ryman-Havard house is a Matagorda landmark. The house was built in 1903 (above)

EDITOR’S NOTE: The following story about early Matagorda settlers if from a Matagorda County Historical Association tape made in 1982 at the home of Geraldyne Havard in Matagorda.
   She talked about the house primarily, its occupants, the Ryman family and the history that is involved with their comings and goings.
   Eve Bond conducted the interview that’s found on the Matagorda County genweb: www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~txmatago/.
  This house was built at the turn of the century by my grandfather who was Boltes Albert Ryman.
