1) Land Grant Maps of Fayette County for 1840, 1843, 1865, 1871. The last two contain the Delaplain League. There are excellent maps of the Warda, Winchester, Round Top areas during the time of the Wends.

2) Fayette County, Her History and Her People by Frank Lotto. This history was published in 1902 and is written with the old Democratic overtones. The old voting districts are defined. Near the end is a concise history of each town in Fayette County, along with some local advertising of that time.

3)Maps of Texas is an interesting website where you can download interactive maps of Texas.
