After all, a small part of Texas was named after his ancestors. <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tomlinson_Hill,_Texas">Tomlinson Hill&nbsp;</a>is a small town community in Falls County. It's a place where generations of his family carved out a comfortable living from the land.</p><p>Before the Civil War, they also owned slaves. But Chris grew up believing what he'd been told: that the slaves his family owned were happy –&nbsp;so happy they took the family name and settled the land after they were free.</p><p>It was not until after he returned from 11 years in Africa as the Nairobi Bureau Chief for the Associated Press that Tomlinson&nbsp;decided to delve into his family history.
