I spent my childhood summers in Anahuac my maternal grandparents' home from the mid 1950's to the mid 1960s. During those years I learned a lot of the local folklore including the following: chambersea.
Built not long after tezas gained independence from Mexico the house of Thomas Jefferson chambers still stands a short distance north of the courthouse. Chambers was shot dead through a window of the house in 1865 and his spirit is said to
    lurk within the house still.
An added legend is that the bullet that killed him passed through his body and penetrated his portrait on a wall in exactly
the same spot that it struck him.

Winged captains. Another bit of folklore from Anahuac concerns the white herons that used to frequent the area in abundance and sometimes are still seen. When I was fourteen and doing research for a paper on the trinity River I was told in a personal interview by one of the elderly locals about how many once believed that the herons were the reincarnated spirits of old boat captains, and that they would guide those navigating upper trinity bay and the river mouth so that their boats did not come to grief on the constantly shifting sand bars and shoals.
