     In 1821, the area which would become Alleyton, Texas was happened upon by Rawson Alley who migrated from Missouri, where he was born in 1793. He helped survey the land which would become the headquarters of Stephen F. Austin’s colony. In exchange he was given this area that now bears his name. 

    Tidbit of Information:  When he died in 1833, his Will was administered by attorney William B. Travis, who became the Commander in the defense of the Alamo.
