About this story

Michael Barnes has covered a broad range of cultural issues for the American-Statesman since 1989, including regional historical topics. Barnes is also the Statesman’s social columnist. This is the third in his Ancestral Austin series, which traces multi-generational engagement in Central Texas. In 2011, he profiled the Limón-Estrada dynasty that includes several thousand members, most of them descended from one immigrant couple. In 2012, he looked at the Koock-Faulk-Kuykendall brood, which has included prominent ranchers, lawyers, writers, performers, activists and hosts, once based at a family farmhouse that is now the Green Pastures restaurant.
