    The first installment of colonists began to settle in the "Little Colony", north of Mina, perhaps as early as 1827 or 1828. Included among them were Martin Wells, William Barton and his boys, Lehman and Jesse Barker, Josiah Wilbarger, Reuben Hornsby, and his family, Uncle Bobby Mitchell of "Mitchell's Bend", who lived just across the river from the Hornsby family, headed by Reuben and his wife Aunt Sally.

    Some more early Bastrop Court items:

    At a court held in 1838, It was shown also, at this term that Martin Wells had died and the Chief Justice appointed J.B. Walters and Norman Woods executors of his will.

    July term of Mina Court 1837

    The last will and testament of one Martin Wells was filed for and admitted to probate by the court on this date, July 31, 1837. The instrument named as legatees: John M. Wells, Wayman Wells, John B. Walters, and Norman Woods, and the testator provided that the "remainder to be equally divided between his other children". The will was proven by the statement of James Gilliland, (Rev.) and Thomas A. Mays.

    Martin Wells, Jr., Early settler, son of Martin Wells, Sr., was born in North Carolina on December 9, 1774. His father sold his land in New Hanover Co., North Carolina in 1796 and the family moved to Montgomery Co., Tennessee, where both Martin's appear on the tax rolls in 1798. Martin Jr., bought land in Stewart Co., Tennessee in 1806 and married Sarah Boyd in 1807. The muster roll of the War of 1812 in the Tennessee Archives lists Martin as serving in Captain James Hagard's Company of Mounted Riflemen from January to May 1814. He sold his land in Stewart Co., Tennessee in 1815 and later moved to Marengo Co., Alabama. In 1829 he sold his land in Alabama, and he and his family moved to Bastrop Co., Texas as settlers in Stephen F. Austin's Little Colony, later the site of the town of Bastrop. Between 1808 and 1829 Martin and Sally Wells had nine children, seven of who survived childhood.
