97 Making a Time Line Why Learn This Skill? A time line is a concise way to show the order of historical events within a certain time period. Most time lines are drawn horizontally. They represent different amounts of time, or time spans. Look at the two time lines shown on page 171 of your textbook. This feature is found on page 171 of your textbook.

103 Arriving in Texas in 1829, Gail Borden, Jr., became a surveyor for Stephen F. Austin s colony by He was also a newspaper publisher and mapmaker in San Felipe. Later, Borden invented a process for condensing milk. Products bearing his name are still sold in U.S. supermarkets.
104 Not all African American colonists in Texas were slaves. William E. Goyens, a North Carolina native, settled in Texas in Goyens was an exceptional entrepreneur and became one of the first wealthy Texans. The Ashworths, an African American family, migrated to Texas from Calcasieu Parish in Louisiana. They settled in Jefferson County. Hendrick Arnold, a free African American from Mississippi, moved his family to Austin s colony at San Felipe in 1826.
105 African Americans Germans Celebration Click a hyperlink to view the corresponding slide.
106 Few enslaved African Americans lived in Texas before the arrival of settlers from the United States. The first reliable census in 1777 listed 20 African Americans, most of whom were probably enslaved. A 1785 census listed 40 enslaved persons.
107 Germans were another important group of European immigrants who colonized Texas. In 1831, Johann Friedrich Ernst moved his family from New York to Texas. Ernst wrote to a friend in his native Oldenburg about the opportunities and the beauty of the state. His letter was published in newspapers throughout Germany. Ernst s letter is credited with starting German immigration to Texas, which resulted in towns such as Kleberg, Warrenburg, New Braunfels, and Fredericksburg.
108 Life in early Texas was not all hardship. Colonists took time to celebrate, too. During the 1830s, the Mexicans of Matamoros wanted to improve trade relations with their Irish colonist neighbors. So they held a four-day feast or banquet on the banks of a creek eight miles south of San Patricio. Thereafter the little stream became known as Banquete Creek. Later on, a community that grew up near the creek took its name.
109 Contrary to popular belief, Stephen F. Austin was not eager to colonize Texas. According to The Dictionary of Texas Misinformation, Stephen F. Austin would only do so if he could attract the best of colonists. He instigated strict rules for colonists, rejecting men who had drinking problems or unsavory reputations. As a result, he ended up with a rock-solid, reliable group of pioneers.
110 Stephen F. Austin Three-Legged Willie Click a hyperlink to view the corresponding slide.
111 By colonizing Texas, Stephen F. Austin hoped to repay his father s debts. Historian Eugene Barker has said that Stephen was probably better suited to carry out the colonization of this Mexican territory. Moses Austin lacked patience, while patience was one of Stephen s strongest characteristics.
112 R.M. Williamson, who moved to Texas from Georgia in 1826, was known as Three-Legged Willie. One of his legs was crippled and bent backward, so he wore a wooden leg to support the weight of his body. Another early settler, Noah Smithwick, recalled being surprised one evening when he was called upon to come help a neighbor who had broken his leg. Smithwick, a blacksmith, at first refused to go, saying that the man needed a doctor, not a blacksmith. He was then told the the patient was Williamson, and that the broken leg was a wooden one. Williamson was an outstanding lawyer who would later become a leader in the Texas movement for independence from Mexico.
113 Irish Carlos de la Garza Native Americans Click a hyperlink to view the corresponding slide.
114 Since Mexico required colonists to be Catholic, this was a great attraction to Catholics in Ireland, who were not permitted to own land. In 1825, two Irishmen, John McMullen and his son-in-law, James McGloin, received an empresario contract to settle 200 Irish families in Texas. They established the town of San Patricio de Hibernia (St. Patrick of Ireland) in 1831, and by 1835 its population was nearly 500.
115 Carlos de la Garza and the Martín de León family owned large ranches in South Texas. Carlos de la Garza established his ranch on the San Antonio River below Goliad in the 1830s. The Carlos Rancho was a community rather than a ranch, with is own Catholic church, commissary, ranch headquarters, and log store.
116 Some Native Americans were also colonists. Cherokees moved to Texas in the 1820s after they were forced off their lands in the southeastern United States. One Cherokee chief, Richard Fields, asked Governor Martínez for a Texas land grant, but was refused.
