TOY, SAMUEL (?–?). Samuel Toy, one of Stephen F. Austin's Old Three Hundred colonists, was in Texas in time to be enumerated in the census of March 1826, when he was classified as a tailor and a single man aged between twenty-five and forty. On May 7, 1827, he received title to a sitio of land now in Austin County.
