Pamelia Pickett (Picket), one of Stephen F. Austin's Old Three Hundred colonists, on July 21, 1824, received title to a league and a labor of land now in Matagorda and Austin counties. The census of March 1826 classified Pickett as a farmer and stock raiser, a widow aged between forty and fifty. Her household consisted of a son, a daughter, and a slave. She made her home at Bell's Landing and was a close friend of the Austin family.
