Samuel Miller, one of Stephen F. Austin's Old Three Hundred colonists, received title to a sitio of land in what is now Washington County on August 19, 1824. The census of March 1826 listed him as a farmer and stock raiser, aged between twenty-five and forty, whose household included his wife and three sons. He was a militia commander in the colony in June 1826. His name appeared on the tax rolls in Washington County in 1837.
