Marker Text Members of Stephen F. Austin's second colony, Noah Griffith (1786-1853) and his wife Esther (Wightman) (1788-1863) came to Texas in 1829 from New York. They lived in the port community of Matagorda before moving here in 1831. This site is part of their original Mexican land grant. Griffith was a farmer and miller, and the Griffith home was used as an early polling place.
