An eyewitness story
Stephan f austin was a great man he offered my family and me to come and be in texas with him. This was very big he was the first man to build a community in texas. The people were calling him the father of texas. He had promised anyone who had come with him would be safe and there would be enough riches for a lot of people. Many people were concerned on going though because almost of the people who went to settlements were always killed or barley escaping with there lives. The settlements were always failing. my family and me had to take this chance though we had nothing back home it was worth a chance.
