The Texas equivalent of the "Mayflower" adventures, the three hundred families who settled Stephen F. Austin's original colony formed the foundation on which a republic and then a state was built. In this revised and expanded edition of the book first published in 1991, many stories of those early Texians are told by their descendants. "Austin's Old Three Hundred" features reference sources, portraits, illustrations, glossary terms and anecdotal information. Interesting sidebars are also interspersed throughout. The lists of colonists, along with specific grants, prove indispensable for those researching their ancestors or for historians seeking information about Texas' first Anglo settlers. Each biography in the book was researched and written by a descendant.
