Abstract

Thomas F. McKinney and Samuel May Williams were aggressive entrepreneurs in early Texas who formed a partnership in 1834. Their ventures in land speculation and the cotton market led to their participation in the Texas Revolution of 1835-1836. However, their politics placed them at odds with the Texas independence movement and their vast material aid to the war left them deeply in debt.
