Photos in the travel bug logs are appreciated.  I will be re-post them here, where they can be seen by other cachers.

About This Item

beadwhiteblackbluespokesceramic

This is one of a series of large beads obtained from different places and converted into travel bugs.  They are named for Texas towns with interesting names or histories.

Point Blank is in northern San Jacinto County. The name originated with Florence Dissiway, a Frenchwoman who moved to the area during the 1850s to be a governess for the R. T. and Henry Robinson families.  Dissiway called the spot Blanc Point (White Point in French), which local residents eventually changed to Point Blank, changing the context of the original name.  

R. T. Robinson reputedly set up the first store; among the community's early residents was future governor George T. Wood, who set up a plantation as early as 1839.  Wood was subsequently buried in the Robinson cemetery, where a monument was erected by the state in 1911.  A post office was established at Point Blank in 1884.
