1 unknown Durstana Centennial
Privately Published 1951 Soft cover Good No Jacket Book

The back cover and the last page entitled "Postscript" are both missing. The previous owner of this volume has marked certain items with checks, filled in some areas of the genealogy which had been left blank deliberately, and written a few comments on the pages. This volume will be of great interest to descendants of the Durst family and those interested in the history of Texas.
