'Lives Remembered': The story of Captain Jim Mainland

(Editor’s note: Recently DeWitt County Historical Commission hosted “Lives Remembered” with costumed reenactors. Members of the commission presented histories of a few of this county’s memorable residents. This is one of those ‘Lives Remembered.’)
 
Good afternoon. My name is Captain Jim Mainland. I was a pilot for the Morgan and Harris Steamship Line at the time of my death in 1873. 
 
I emigrated from Scotland with my wife Elizabeth. I raised cattle on the open range of Matagorda Island and registered my brand in 1854 at the Calhoun County Courthouse. We lived near the old lighthouse at Pass Cavello, and in 1855, I was bonded as a ship’s pilot.

By Robert Proctor
The Cuero Record
 
Cuero’s Christmas in the Park, sponsored by the December Events Committee of the Cuero Development Corporation, is back and now in its 16th year. Fifteen new signs have been added to the city park’s Christmas tour, and the live nativity scene will also return.
 
Kay Lewis, president of the December Events Committee, talked about all the hard work done in preparation for one of Cuero’s most famous attractions.
 
Lewis said, “We’re ready to open up. The guys worked hard. Police are ready to herd the traffic. During the summer, we changed 50,000 light bulbs. That’s a lot of work especially in the heat. We had a good group this year including city employees and the Stevenson Unit, which really made it go quicker.”
