Hall of Fame and Museum actively collects information on all known Texas
Rangers. Part of this effort is an attempt to create a roster of identifiable

State records, the list contains gaps and missing information.
Please note that
this list covers only unit commanders of various ranks
and not all Texas Rangers. For information on individual Rangers please
