Early Texas Settlers 1700s-1800s

Ranging from genealogical sketches to passenger lists and history of the settlement of Texas, the eight books collected here are comprehensive in their coverage of early Texas. In all, approximately 94,000 early Texas settlers are referenced.  Much of the importance of this collection stems from the fact that it covers a period of time before statehood and before federal record-keeping was established. For example, although the first federal census was not taken in Texas until 1850, here you’ll find a virtual census (recreated from poll lists) for 1846.
