I am descended from the actual founders of Lonesome Dove Church. My Great-grandparents are buried in the church cemetery. I say this as qualification for what I am about to say. No one named Shepherd was ever involved in the formation of the church. The church founders were named Medlin, Gibson, Hallford, Throop and Foster. I like a good story as well as the next guy. As a matter of fact I have written historical fiction about my great grandfather. but it was based on historical events. The only thing true about this film is the fact that the Lonesome Dove church was built in 1845. Grapevine Texas wasn't established until much later. Calling this a true story is laughable. If you want to make a movie for entertainment I'm all for it. But don't call it a true story.
