About Fredda Jones

Fredda Davis Jones was raised “in the country” in Comanche County and learned very early that creativity and innovation are traits that can flourish even in small-town Texas and that with enough effort, indeed nothing is impossible, including being married to the same man for over 40 years! Rickey and Fredda have 2 children, 5 grandchildren, and a crazy life that includes sitting in the bleachers several times a week. The rest of her time is spent creating great content for texansunited.com and marketing small-town Texas.

    Special thanks to Fredda Jones for her wonderful blog posts about Comanche history and people.

    You have a fan in my 87-year-old Dad, Frank Harrison Sawberger, who lives in LaPorte, Texas near Houston, loves anything I can find for him on his ancestors in the area, namely James Dudley Sherrill, Frank Harrison Sherrill and Uncle Mart Fleming. He is not online, so I’ve printed your blog posts for him which he reads them with relish!

    Thank you for keeping history alive!
