History

Jacinto City’s history dates back to Nov. 1, 1841, when the State of Texas issued a land grant to James Wyatt Oates. In 1866, his grandson, Charles Oates, built the first home in what is now Jacinto City. Whittier Elementary School currently sits on that site. At that time, ranching and logging were the predominant industries in the area. Once the Houston Ship Channel was developed and oil refining took root in the area, things started to grow rapidly. In 1917 a little dirt road called Market Street was covered with shell. In the 1920’s Holland Avenue was extended to go from Clinton Drive to Market Street.

Our status as a rural community changed around 1942 when Frank Sharp began to develop the first subdivision then known as Industrial Acres. Soon after, a commercial hub appeared which included a theater, grocery store and later a post office. In 1946 a group of citizens banded together to form a General Law City which was incorporated in May of 1946.

Moravian Traditional Music

Moravian traditional music represents a part of the European musical culture connected with the regions around the western Carpathian Mountains. Many styles of Moravian traditional music exist, varying by location and function, but much of it is characterized by a specific melodic and harmonic texture related to the Eastern European musical world. According to Czech musicologist Jiří Plocek, Moravia  is the area where the European East musically meets the West.

Moravian folk bands are mainly centered around a string section and a large cimbalom, which are often complemented by other instruments. Moravian traditional music influenced many Czech classical composers’ work, especially Leoš Janáček, who was at the forefront of the Moravian folklore movement. Towards the end of the 20th century, Moravian folk music had a noticeable influence on the Czech jazz scene, and folk songs have been adapted into rock bands‘ repretoires. Today, there are many festivals still held throughout Moravia with performances from traditional bands and dance ensembles.

Seal of Williamson County, Texas

My Paternal Grandmother was Elizabeth Annie “Bessie” Mazac Frederick from Granger, Williamson County, Texas. They married on October 12, 1914 at the St. Cyril & Methodius Catholic Church, Granger, Texas.  Charlie and Bessie were both Catholics.

My Grandmother loved pink, so I posted the pink background of the Moravian-Czech flower. She liked artificial because she said they never die.

She lost my Grandfather in 1947 to Stomach Cancer, and she had a hard life raising her five children on her own. Grandma was an excellent cook, a good mother, and she also grew a garden with her sons, Woodrow and Charles for years to help feed the family. 

Charles F. “Charlie” Frederick also known as Karel Fredrich, and Charles Fredrick, was born on April 20, 1892 in Mala Lhota, Vsetina, Moravia and he emigrated from Moravia in 1894 to New York, and then…
