Josh Kercheville is a proud direct descendant of two Texas immigrants who participated in securing Texas independence. Colonel Jesse L. McCrocklin took part in the Siege of Bexar in 1835 and the Battle of San Jacinto in 1836. Further, in 1842 he served in the Somervell Expedition. For his military service, Colonel McCrocklin received the first land grant within present Blanco County.
In 1842, Andrew Jackson (A.J.) Kercheville, then in Mobile, Alabama, answered the call to arms by joining the Republic of Texas Militia. The threat of Mexican aggression at that time lasted only a few months, but again he answered the call in 1846 in the U.S. War with Mexico by joining the 1st Alabama Regiment. After that war, he traveled back to Texas where in 1852 he married Mary Milam McCrocklin, the daughter of Colonel Jesse L. McCrocklin.
The McCrocklin and Kercheville families settled on the McCrocklin land grant and A.J. and Mary Kercheville’s son, Richard, was purported to be the first Anglo child born in what would become Blanco County.
During the U.S. Civil War, A.J. Kercheville served in the Texas State Troops (TST) organized to protect the frontier from Indians and bushwhackers. He also enlisted in the Minute Men for Blanco County and was elected Captain for Comal County TST. Following the war, Captain Kercheville was elected Sheriff of Blanco County.
The Kercheville family is proud of the legacy left by these early fighters for Texas independence.
