SOJOURNER, ALBERT LLOYD (?–?). Albert Lloyd Sojourner was one of Stephen F. Austin's Old Three Hundred colonists. As such, he and his partner, Pumphrey Burnett, received title to a sitio of land in what is now Matagorda County on July 24, 1824. In the census of the Colorado district in 1825 he was listed as Loid Sojourner, farmer, and in that of 1826 as Alfred Lloyd Sojourner, farmer and stock raiser, a single man aged between twenty-five and forty.
