Sam Elliott: "I'm a Texan at heart, like he was," he said. "All my family's from Texas. My great-great-great-grandfather was a surgeon at the Battle of San Jacinto. My great-great-grandfather was a Texas Ranger. My father was in the Fish and Wildlife Service - he started out trapping gophers in Marfa and later had jurisdiction over three states. He and my mother moved from El Paso to Sacramento just before I was born, so I grew up in California, later Oregon."
