    History in a Pecan Shell

    A man named Peter Wolfe chose this part of Texas to settle in sometime before 1876. It was thereafter called Wolfe’s Neighborhood until a post office was applied for in the early 1900s.

    Storekeeper R.L. Peevy submitted a list of names from his Bible and told the post office to pick one. They chose Caesar and the post office opened in 1903.

    By 1914 Caesar had a population of just 15 with the store, post office and a church.

    Area children attended the Caesar School. The town failed to develop – even after the discovery of gas and oil. Landowners preferred things to remain the way they were – and so has it been.

    The post office closed sometime in the 1930s and all that’s left today are the images seen here.

    The Pullin-Livingston Cemetery

    Photographer's Note:
    “This is all that remains of Caesar. The Pullin-Livingston Cemetery sits in brush at the intersection of FM798 & FM 2985. It's taken over by the brush seen in one of the photos. I did not have snake Leggings or a Machete that day or I might have ventured in to find it. It was still visible from the road in the 1970's, as I recall." - Will Beauchamp

    The "Indian Scout Tree"

    Photographer's Note:
    "About 1-2 miles ESE of the former town site sits a big oak just off FM 798 on the north side of the road.  This tree, called the "Indian Scout Tree", witnessed the last Indian Battle in Bee County. 

    My dad ran cattle for several years on the place with the Fox family. Mr. Fox described the battle occurring to the SE of the tree in open terrain with scattered oaks. The scout who had been in the tree was one of the survivors of the battle.” - Will Beauchamp
