Pg. 218:
The Nacogdochians were not long in making him a citizen, and he soon after set out for the Alamo, the scene of his final exploit and his heroic death.

1 March 1916, Galveston (TX) Daily News, pg. 4, col. 3:
And now the lawyers are after State Press. Two of them, one from Nacogdoches and one from Cisco—East and West—have written in to set S. P. and everybody else right on “Cotton-Eyed Joe.” Each of these attorneys at law sends what he declares to be the only authorized version of the song, and each of these versions is different from the other. The Ncogdochean says his version is right, because he heard it before the war.

25 September 1917, Dallas (TX) Morning News, “The State Press,” pg. 10, col. 3:
A Nacogdoches reader writes in to suggest that the drouth-stricken travelers who are said to be headed east from west be sent to Austin and given work upon the proposed investigation board. Of course the Nacogdochean is facetious.

17 January 1922, Dallas (TX) Morning News, “The State Press,” pt. 1, pg. 14, col. 4:
Nacogdoches is beginning Anno Domini, 1822 with a determination to drive dull gloom away by showing him that he is not master of the Nacogdocheans’ house.

13 October 1930, Dallas (TX) Morning News, “The State Press,” pt. 2, pg. 12, col. 3:
Now we have a letter from Nacogdoches. It isn’t often this column gets a call from Nacogdoches, either because the Nacogdocheans are indifferent to contemporary literature or because they simply don’t give a dang.
