In it's early days, Texas was known in Spanish as "Tejas". There were several spellings of Her native sons in English as Texensians, Texanians... and finally Texans. In Spanish, I can't recall if early residents were referred to as "Tejasians" or "Tejanians". Can anyone help with this'
James Michener, in his book, Texas, used the word Texian, word also used in movie the Alamo. Early Texans were Tejanos, in Spanish. Mexicans were Mejicanos, americans, americanos. the "ians" suffix, not sure it is Spanish.
