Collection Historical Note

Members of the Clarke and Page families played significant roles in the early history of Texas. Anthony Robert Clarke, the first member of the family to settle in Texas in 1821, was elected judge or "alcalde" of Nacogdoches in 1824. In 1822, he had been joined in Nacogdoches by his widowed sister, Eliza Clarke Page, and her five sons. They all became part of Stephen F. Austin's famous first colony, the Old Three Hundred.

One of Eliza's sons, Joseph William Page, participated in the Siege of Bexar in 1835. Another son, Samuel Harrison Page who was brought to Nacogdoches at age 2, participated in the Vasquez Campaign of 1842. After his marriage, Samuel lived on Padre Island and in Corpus Christi.
