Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Alexander Gregg (1819-1893), an Episcopal clergyman, was the first bishop of Texas. Gregg was the first elected Bishop of Texas in 1859. His diocese covered the entire state of Texas. Bishop Gregg presided through the difficult days of the Civil War and Reconstruction, and gave leadership as Texas changed from frontier to settled community. He saw the number of churches in his diocese grow from six to sixty. In 1874, toward the end of his episcopate, Gregg presided over the division of the Diocese of Texas into three dioceses - two new missionary districts of West Texas and North Texas. The Diocese of Texas retained the name of the original diocese in our present boundaries. Now there are a total of six separate bishoprics (dioceses) in the state: the Dioceses of Texas, West Texas, Dallas, Fort Worth, Northwest Texas and western most Texas attached to New Mexico as the Diocese of the Rio Grande.show more
