Today, I taken some pictures around Hamilton County for other features when I discovered these X’s hiding in the pictures. — Dee

Bullman Bridge

Bulman Bridge

The Bulman Bridge was located on the north side of the Leon River ten miles east of Hamilton near Rock House in the community named at various times Pulltight, Busyton, Snow Creek, Old Hamilton, and Rock Church. Rev. Henry Jefferson Bulman came to Hamilton County in 1871 where he bought a farm on the Leon River twelve miles east of Hamilton. The Bulman Bridge was named in his honor. The Bulman and other old bridges have been relocated to the Pecan Creek Park in Hamilton. — ECW

Grave marker for William “Brushy Bill” Henry Roberts AKA Billy the Kid. According to local legend that is the marker for the real Billy the Kid.  Nearby Hico, Texas has made a big deal out of the Billy the Kid Legend. I’m not really convinced Brushy Bill was the real Billy the Kid but my mom does remember running into him on the square (downtown) in Hamilton when she was a child. Roberts delighted in telling stories of being Billy the Kid.
