Descendants of Austin's Old 300 Donates to Library

April 17, 2004


On April 17, 2004, the Descendants of Austin's Old 300, a group composed of descendants of Stephen F. Austin's original 300 colonists, made a donation to the Nesbitt Memorial Library in Columbus. The donation was in recognition of the library's continuing attempts to collect, preserve, and promote the history of Austin's Colony. Pictured from left to right are Bettie Utter, Shirley Stedman, Carolyn Marble, Bill Stein, Kay Anderson, Harry Howell, and Barbara Warnock. Stein accepted the donation on behalf of the library; the others are directors of the Old 300 group
