This clarification was received from Betsy Tyson, Archivist and Exhibits Coordinator, TMA Knowledge Center:

I did some further research, as the name was not familiar as the first vice president. Here is what I found, and I can understand how the researcher could have been confused.

Dr. Knox was not the first vice president of TMA, which was organized in January, 1853 and met again that year. Because of the vast distances members had to travel and then the Civil War, the TMA held no other meetings until 1869. Annual meetings have been held continuously since.

When Sam R. Burroughs, MD, of Buffalo, was elected as TMA president 1887-88, other officers elected to serve with him were: R.T. Knox, MD, of Gonzales, first vice president , A.M. Douglas, MD, of Osceola, second vice president; and A. A. Terhune, of Jefferson, third vice president.

Membership records for the earliest years of TMA are incomplete. The first membership listing I found for Dr. R.T. Knox of Gonzales was in 1878, but he could have been a member before that date. The TMA Archives contain few files or biographical information on early members.
Im adding your interesting article, The history of the Dewees Remschel House, part II, as published in the Wilson County News, plus my clarification, to the TMA Archives. We always welcome new information about TMA members.

If I can provide additional information on early physicians in Gonzales or Wilson County, please feel free to contact me. Thanks for all your historical society is doing to add to the knowledge of early Texas history.
