Does Jana really have an ancestor who fought at the Alamo?
Yes, she does. Jana’s great-great-great granduncle fought at the Alamo in 1836. Those were the beginnings of her Texas roots on her paternal grandmother’s side of the family. Jana is proud to be a full third-generation Texan, her parents and all of her grandparents having been born in Texas. (She thinks she’s but one great-grandparent shy of being fully fourth generation.)
