Henry Austin came to Texas at the urging of his cousin, Stephen F. Austin. In 1831 his application for land was approved by the Mexican government and he began a plantation, Bolivar, on the Brazos River. The plantation was never profitable, but Austin remained in Texas as a faithful supporter of his cousin and as a lawyer.
