Letter From Cuttyhunk: Flying Santa and our lighthouse keepers - The Martha's Vineyard Times
Welcome back. The book does have some nice photos of a couple of the lighthouses when they were being built and what has happened to the remains of other lighthouses that no longer stand and where you can visit those remnants today.
As time moved on, many Texas lighthouses were abandoned, some were lost, and others found their way into private ownership. Some are still aids to navigation.

Another reason might have been because so many family records and photographs of life at the lighthouses were lost in devastating hurricanes. But author Steph McDougal has done a wonderful job of gathering so many historic images of the lighthouses of Texas in another in the series of Images of America books from Arcadia Publishing, a company that has been working hard at saving images of bygone America. Not only is the book loaded with really neat historic images of Texas lighthouses, the author has included lightships, life-saving stations, and photos of the destructive force of the hurricanes that have so greatly affected the lives of the lighthouse keepers and the people who lived on the Gulf Coast, especially in an era when life itself was difficult.

Such was the case of Stephan Decatur Hull, who is pictured in the book; was a native of Baltimore, Maryland who raised six daughters at two Texas lighthouses. Two of them grew up to marry assistant lighthouse keepers. The book mentions that in his daughter Florence married assistant lighthouse keeper Henry C. Clausen at the Sabine Pass Lighthouse.
The Rock That Saved the Lighthouse Keeper
Strangely, there were no photos in the book of the wedding or the assistant keeper whom she married. In fact, the book is lacking in photographs of the lighthouse keepers or the assistant keepers of the Texas lighthouses. Perhaps none could be found.
