District Court Records B-2 1841 - 1848
Montgomery County Texas

The majority of the transcription of this record was done by Lois Jett. Her health failed and it is incomplete missing pages 309-412. I would like to thank Inez Fontenot for completing the data entry of handwritten transcriptions by Lois Jett and doing a terrific job formatting the pages.

Book B-2 is one of two books discovered in the basement of the present-day Montgomery County Courthouse. These books contain the early records of Montgomery County District Court during the period 1841 - 1848. 

Texas won its independence from Mexico in 1836. Created by the First Congress on 14 December 1837, Montgomery County, named for the Town of Montgomery, was the third county to be created by the new Republic. When Texas became the 28th state in the Union in 1845, it was required to change the boundaries of its counties to make them smaller. As a result, Montgomery County was divided into six parts and became the parent county of GRIMES, MADISON, SAN JACINTO, WALLER AND WALKER Counties
