Subject: Re: infomation about a town named Princeville
Good afternoon Richard,
The following is the article in the Gonzales County History Book on the town of Princeville:

The Princeville Baptist Church was founded by the Reverend Mitchel Harrison June 10, 1872. Land was donated to build a church by Davis Prince, thus the source of the name, Princeville. Few churches were able to retain early membership lists, but Princeville even kept their members' occupations. Though no dates were available, the following early members were listed: deacons, Samuel Prince Sr., Boston Prince Sr., Moses Moore, Orong Thomas, Henry Johnson, Will Cubet, Gilbert B.
