Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0806310324, Paperback)Founded by W. S. Peters and a group of Kentucky businessmen, the Peters Colony provided for the settlement of vast tracts of land in northeastern Texas during the years 1842 to 1848, primarily in the present-day counties of Collin, Cooke, Dallas, Denton, Ellis, Grayson, and Tarrant. The majority of the 2,000 persons who took up land there were from Kentucky and surrounding states.
In this publication the author has furnished a history of the Peters Colony as well as a list of the colonists themselves. In this list the genealogist is given full scope for his researches, as each of the 2,000 settlers is positively identified with regard to the following information: name, marital status, occupation, age, year of migration to Texas, county of settlement, state of birth, and state from which he migrated.
