Mary Austin Holley

Mary Austin Holley (1784–1846) was an American historical writer best known as the author of the first known English-language history of Texas, ''Texas'' (1833), expanded in 1836 into ''History of Texas''. She was a cousin of Stephen F. Austin, who arranged for Holley to receive a land grant on Galveston Bay. Although Holley visited Texas five times (in 1831, 1835, 1838, 1840, and 1843), she was never able to afford to move there. Provided by Wikipedia
