Biographical Notes

The Pease, Graham, and Niles Families Papers consist of materials related to multiple members of the families of Elisha Marshall Pease, who was governor of Texas from 1853 to 1857 and from 1867 to 1869, and of his wife, Lucadia Christiana (Niles) Pease. Below are biographical notes on the four members of the family whose materials make up a majority of the collection.

Elisha Marshall Pease (1812-1883) was born in Enfield, Hartford County, Connecticut, to Lorrain T. Pease and Sarah (Marshall) Pease. He was called "Marshall" by his family and is not known to have signed himself as anything but "E. M. Pease" and "Marshall"--never "Elisha." He studied at Westfield Academy (Mass.) until age fourteen or fifteen, after which he worked as a store clerk and then for the Hartford Post Office. He left Connecticut in 1834 and, after exploring the Midwest and making a trip to New Orleans, came to Texas in 1835. There he came to acquire financial security that he could not gain in New England.

Pease settled in the Municipality of Mina (later renamed Bastrop) where he became involved in the early stages of the Texas Revolution. He fought in the first battle at Gonzales, and then he began service to the interim government and, later, that of the Republic of Texas. He wrote part of the Constitution of the Republic of Texas and served in several positions in the interim government. He settled in Brazoria at the invitation of John Austin Wharton, where he joined Wharton's law firm, and he was admitted to the Texas bar in 1837. He served in the first three terms of the Texas legislature after annexation.

Pease ran unsuccessfully for governor in 1851, but he won two years later, and he and his family moved to Austin. He was governor for two terms (1853-1857), during which time his administration settled the debt remaining from the Texas Revolution, putting the state on a sound financial foundation for the first time. He persuaded the Legislature to establish a Permanent School Fund of two million dollars, but as much as he wanted public schools, they were not generally operational until after the Civil War. He encouraged railroad construction in the state and led the building campaign that resulted in construction of the Governor's Mansion, the General Land Office, and a new Capitol. He also led the establishment of state schools for the deaf and the blind, as well as the state "lunatic asylum."

In 1859, Pease bought the home that James B. Shaw had built west of the City of Austin in 1854. With its surrounding farm and untouched acres, it became known as Woodlawn. The house was the prototype of the Governor's Mansion--both were built by Austin's "master builder," Abner H. Cook. Four generations of the Pease family lived there.

Before, during, and after the Civil War, Pease was loyal to the Union, although he owned slaves. He and his family remained in Austin during the War, lest they lose all their property, and he farmed with his slaves at Woodlawn. Because he refused to swear loyalty to the Confederacy, he could not practice law during the War.

During Reconstruction, he unsuccessfully ran for governor in 1866. The following year, he was appointed provisional governor by the U. S. Army command in charge of Texas. In 1869, he resigned over political differences. He continued to be involved in Texas politics and, in 1879, he was appointed United States Customs Collector, where he served two years. He co-founded a bank in Austin and was involved in civic improvements. Pease died suddenly in Lampasas and was buried in the family plot of the Austin City Cemetery, now Oakwood Cemetery.

Lucadia Christiana (Niles) Pease (1813-1905) was born in Poquonock, Hartford County, Connecticut, to Richard Niles and Christiana (Griswold) Niles. Her education was equivalent to a level of high school today. At age twenty-five, she went to stay with a family in Virginia and saw Southern plantation life, including slavery, for the first time. She later visited her uncle, U. S. Senator John Milton Niles, in Washington City at the time that Texas was annexed to the Union.

In 1848, Marshall Pease (a distant cousin) proposed to Lucadia, and they were married two years later. Throughout her life in Texas, Lucadia maintained her relationship with her family in Connecticut and with her husband while he was away through extensive correspondence. She was also in the north for months at a time--hence much more correspondence was written during those periods.

Lucadia and Marshall's letters are full of their love for one another and for their three daughters, Carrie Margaret, Julia Maria (Julie), and Anne Marshall. During the Civil War, Anne died of typhoid fever at the age of seven. The couple brought up the children with as much education as they could provide in Austin, which had no public schools at the time, and in Connecticut.

In the 1850s, Lucadia declared her belief in women's rights, and her husband supported her. She owned property in her own name and was executrix of his extensive will. As the governor's wife and thereafter, she was responsible for extensive hospitality, which was known to be gracious. She passed away at the age of ninety-one.

Julia Maria Pease (1853-1918), who was known as Julie, was born in Brazoria in 1853, the year that her father was elected governor. She lived at Woodlawn for most of her life. She was educated at Hartford Female Seminary (CT) and Vassar College (NY), from which she received a degree in fine arts. After her older sister Carrie Pease Graham died in 1882, Julie reared Carrie's three children, Marshall, Niles, and Margaret Graham, at Woodlawn.

Julie led an active social and civic life and was a leader in promoting the arts in Austin. She was one of the first members (and a life member) of the Texas State Historical Association, a member of the University Ladies Club and the Colonial Dames, and a sponsor of the Boy Scouts. She helped raise funds for a hospital and worked to improve Austin's jail conditions. She and her mother were patrons and friends of sculptor Elisabet Ney. Her efforts to preserve Ney's studio and works resulted in the establishment of The Texas Fine Arts Association.

Julie continued her parents' tradition of hospitality at Woodlawn, and she was also a devoted gardener there. She was especially dedicated to the preservation of Austin's trees. She passed away in 1918.

Richard Niles Graham (1881-1959) was the fourth-born child of the Peases' oldest daughter, Carrie Augusta, and her husband, George Thomas Graham of Austin (two of the couple's sons died as toddlers). Following his mother's death with the birth of Margaret, Niles (as he was known) and his siblings moved to Woodlawn. He went to a number of schools, including the Austin Graded School (later renamed Pease Elementary School), West Texas Military Academy, the Pawling School (NY), and Trinity College (CT), but he admitted later in life that he never liked book learning and was a poor student. He did not graduate from Trinity. He returned to Austin to work as a cotton broker.

In 1910, Niles married Anita Laura Goeth of Austin. He and his family lived at Woodlawn. Following his wife's death, he continued to live there until he sold the mansion to former governor Allen Shivers in 1957. In 1916, he co-founded, with his cousin Walter Murray Graham and his sister Margaret Graham Crusemann, Enfield Realty & Home Building Company. They began developing Enfield, an elegant neighborhood, from their family property west of Shoal Creek. They also developed from family property the subdivisions of Westenfield, Westfield, and a portion of Tarrytown. In the 1920s, Niles was secretary of the Infield Petroleum Company, Inc., and he and his family had other business interests across the state.

Throughout his life, Niles was interested in social activities, traveled extensively, and held numerous parties at Woodlawn. He was friends with prominent Austinites such as Walter Long and John Henry Faulk, he was active in many organizations, and he collected books, autographs, and stamps. He was responsible for saving the majority of the Pease, Graham, and Niles Famiies Papers.

Partial family trees for the Pease, Niles, Graham, and Goeth families are available. "Descendant Reports" for the Pease, Niles, Graham, and Goeth families are also available.

Scope and Contents

E. M. Pease and his family were meticulous record keepers, allowing current and future generations a very detailed and intimate view into the personal and professional accomplishments of three noted American families. Included in the Papers are correspondence; agreements, contracts, and deeds; ledgers; maps and blueprints; broadsides and circulars; diaries and journals; newspaper clippings; books and magazines; bills and receipts; and photographs.

The most significant portion of the collection consists of correspondence to and from E. M. Pease, especially his career in Texas politics and law. There are documents from his legal practice in Brazoria County back to 1834, including his involvement in the Texas Revolution, the formation of the Republic of Texas, and the early state government (including one of the few surviving Republic era Texas Rangers muster rolls). Also, Pease represented the legal interests of the Mills brothers in Galveston and Brazoria, arguably two of the wealthiest Texans of the Republic era and the largest slaveholders in the state, and this relationship is amply documented in the collection. The role of businesses such as the Mills Brothers is fertile ground for research into the role that Texas played in the expansion of slavery and the Civil War. Indeed, dozens of documents from Pease's law practice include extensive information about slavery in Texas, as well as slave registers for at least one of his clients. (Also included are documents related to the sales of slaves, correspondence that discusses various aspects of slavery, and letters to Julia Maria Pease from Dave Pease, a former slave for the Pease family, and S.L. Whitley, the child of a former slave for the family.

Pease's governorship and political career are covered in the volumes of letters that he sent and received. Through the extensive correspondence one can track his political development as a moderate Democrat and his influence on Texas and national politics. A sampling of some of these letters reveals a literal "Who's Who" of 19th-century Texas, southern, and American politics, with regular correspondence with people such as Tennessee and Texas politician Sam Houston, Texas and United Sstates Representative Guy Bryan, Austin Mayor, Texas Land Commissioner, and United States Consul to Panama Thomas "Peg Leg" Ward, Confederate Texas Governor (and Pease's Secretary of State) Edward Clark, U. S. Senator Thomas J. Rusk, Texas and New York businessman Swante Swenson, Arkansas and Texas State Supreme Court Justice and legal scholar George Paschal, and U. S. Congressman Timothy Pilsbury, with whom Pease developed a close relationship until Pilsbury's death in 1858. During the period of his first two terms as governor, 1853-1857, the documents reflect Pease's efforts and concerns to bring fiscal stability to the young state. Likewise, there are numerous letters regarding frontier defense and the development of the Texas Rangers, and, in particular, correspondence and reports regarding the infamous Callahan expedition into Mexico. Pease also recognized that developing and adding viable railroad lines was vital to the country's commerce, as seen through his efforts to bring the Southern Pacific railroad through Texas. Pease's personal correspondence also provides a rich trove of documentation of southern life and politics during this crucial period of American history.

In addition to the writings from and about Governor Pease, there are significant holdings of the Pease family, primarily his wife Lucadia and daughter Julia Maria. Pease and Lucadia spent a large portion of their married years apart, so they lived much of their married life through their correspondence. Not only do we see their relationship develop through the letters, but Lucadia appears to have been the dutiful political wife and was an important sounding board and confidante for Pease. Also, Lucadia maintained a regular correspondence with her family in Connecticut, providing a very detailed look at her move to and life in Texas. These documents in particular paint a vivid picture of 19th- and early 20th-century women's issues and family life-they are a treasure trove for researchers interested in women's- and social-history topics.

Below are some additional notes on the scope and content of each of the five acquisitions that make up the Pease,Graham, and Niles Families Papers. Please note that materials pertaining to some family members can be found in more than one acquisition. Each acquisition begins with materials associated with E.M. Pease, Lucadia Pease, Julia Maria Pease, and R. Niles Graham; the rest of the family members follow alphabetically. To understand the relationships between family members, please see the family trees. For additional information on specific materials, please see the notes that are included in the detailed description of the collection.

Please note that the following abbreviations are used in the detailed description: EMP (for Elisha Marshall Pease), LCP (for Lucadia Christiana (Niles) Pease), JMP (for Julia Maria Pease), and RNG (for Richard Niles Graham).

R. Niles Graham-Pease Acquisition: The bulk of this acquisition is from the nineteenth century and is made up of correspondence. The correspondence that E.M. Pease received and wrote concerns his personal, public, business, and legal interests from his earliest days in Texas to his death in 1883. Included are letters that he wrote to his wife and children. The letters that he received deal with the problems of early statehood, events and issues leading up to the Civil War, and the Reconstruction efforts that followed the war. There is also material dealing with Pease's years as governor, his holdings in various Texas counties of the state, his law practice, and his years as United States Customs Collector in Galveston.

Much of the Lucadia Pease's correspondence in this acquisition is between her and her family in Connecticut. (This extensive correspondence is part of the acquisition because R. Niles Graham retrieved letters that Lucadia sent to her family in Connecticut.) There are also letters between her and E.M. Pease, as well as letters between her and her daughters. Other materials include diaries and documents related to her property investments in Texas counties.

Julia Maria Pease's correspondence in this acquisition includes letters to her father, mother, her sister Carrie, and R. Niles Graham, Marshall Pease, Graham, and Carrie Margaret Graham, her nephews and niece. Also included are materials related to her education at Vassar College and to her social and civic activities.

R. Niles Graham's correspondence in this acquisition covers both his personal and his professional relationships. Also included are materials related to his education at St. Paul's School and Trinity College, his various business dealings, including his property investments, and the autographs and scrapbooks that he collected throughout his life.

Following the materials described above are materials related to other members of the Pease family, the Graham family, and the Niles family. Included are business records, personal records, and correspondence of Richard Niles, Lucadia Pease's father, and John Milton Niles, her uncle. These papers, which were produced in Connecticut, add to the family picture and form a background to the history of the Peases and their descendants in Texas.

Materials that were part of the acquisition but that cannot be attributed to a specific family member or (in some cases) to a specific family are included in "Family & Biographical Materials." Following that are photographic materials, which are followed by materials related to friends and acquaintances of the families.

Crusemann Acquisition: This acquisition, the bulk of which is from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, includes additional correspondence and business materials for E.M. Pease, Lucadia Pease, Julia Maria Pease, and Richard Niles Graham. There is also a significant amount of material related to Carrie Margaret (Graham) Crusemann, granddaughter to E.M. and Lucadia Pease. Following materials related to specific family members are "Family Materials" (materials that were part of the acquisition but that cannot be attributed to a specific family member or, in some cases, to a specific family), photographic materials, and materials related to friends and acquaintances of the families.

Harman Acquisition: The bulk of this acquisition centers on the Graham and Harman families during the twentieth century. The records for R. Niles Graham include correspondence, publications and autographs that he collected, and materials related to the Freemasons. There are also records created by Anita Laura (Goeth) Graham, R. Niles Graham's wife, and their daughter, Julie Anita (Graham) Harman. The remaining materials cover other members of the Graham and Harman families, including Julie's husband, James William, and their children, Margaret Graham Harman and Douglas Meriwether Harman. The records for James include his work as a reporter for the Richmond News Leader. Following materials related to specific family members are "Family Materials" (materials that were part of the acquisition but that cannot be attributed to a specific family member or, in some cases, to a specific family) and photographic materials.

Ellett Acquisition: The bulk of this purchased acquisition is from the nineteenth century and devoted to E.M. Pease. The incoming correspondence for both E.M. and Lucadia supplements their correspondence in the R. Graham Niles-Pease Acquisition. Following materials related to specific family members are "Family Materials" (materials that were part of the acquisition but that cannot be attributed to a specific family member or, in some cases, to a specific family) and materials related to friends and acquaintances.

Davis Acquisition: The bulk of purchased acquisition is from the nineteenth century and is also devoted to E.M. Pease. It includes correspondence, business and financial documents, and materials related to Pease's law practice. There are also "Family Materials" (materials that were part of the acquisition but that cannot be attributed to a specific family member or, in some cases, to a specific family) and some records related to J.W. Harris, Pease's law partner.

Arrangement

The Pease, Graham, and Niles Famiies Papers are made up of five separate acquisitions, each one a separate record group. Materials pertaining to some family members can be found in multiple record groups. A more detailed version of the arrangement than the one below is available here.
In the series below, items are arranged by person and then by the function of the material, most of which is self-explanatory. Four of the more common subseries are defined as follows: (1) Business & Financial: Materials related to accounts, banking, expenses, loans, property investments, receipts, stocks and bonds, and taxes; (2) Correspondence: Letters, notes, postcards, and telegrams; (3) Personal: Includes materials related to births, weddings and marriages, anniversaries, and deaths (e.g., obituaries and funeral notices, drafts of wills, estate materials); awards and certificates; diaries and journals; letters of introduction; address books; and recipes; (4) Political: Materials related to a person's political interests--e.g., political documents and materials related to political activities. If a person held political office, those materials will be in his "Professional" subseries; (5) Professional: Documents related to a person's profession, e.g., political office or appointment (E.M. Pease, John Milton Niles, Beriah Graham), attorney (E.M. Pease), real estate (Richard Niles Graham), journalism (James William Harman), academia (Christine Ladd-Franklin), etc.

Acquisition Information

R. Niles Graham-Pease Acquisition--Donor #: DO/1955/072; Donation Dates: 1960, 1974-1975, 1983

Materials were donated by Thomas Adolph Goeth Graham and Mary Bland (Smith) Graham, Marshall Pease Graham II, Julie Anita (Graham) Harman, and Margaret Graham Harman. Five letters written to E. M. Pease purchased in 2016 were added to the Correspondence subseries of this record group-see Purchase records for more details.

Crusemann Acquisition--Donor #: DO/1962/007; Donation Dates: 1962, 1978, 1987

Materials were donated by Paul Conrad Crusemann and Mary Lee (Wilson) Crusemann.

Harman Acquisition--Donor #: DO/1955/072; Donation Dates: 1998-2002

Materials were donated by Margaret Graham Harman.

Ellett Acquisition--Purchase, 2008-2012

In 2008, the AHC learned that a large cache of Pease-related documents was for sale, with an appraised value of $250,000. The seller had inherited the collection from his father, who lived along Shoal Creek in the 1940s. When he was eight years old, the father had an agreement with the local trash collector that he could pick through trash before it went to the incinerator on Shoal Creek. One day, he discovered an old red steamer trunk that he bought for a dime. When he opened it, he discovered that it was packed with old letters and other documents. He spent a lifetime reading and cataloging the items, and his son continued that work. Stories from Enfield of the time mention that Niles Graham was known for dumping boxes of assorted materials out on the front lawn for the trash collector to pick up, and there are even stories of residents finding old documents stuck to bushes and trees while they were walking their dogs. Thus, it is likely that the red steamer trunk discovered by an eight-year-old boy was one of Niles Graham's trash dumps. Through generous donations by a number of Austinites, a generous discount by the seller, and portions of the AHC's acquisitions budget, the AHC was able to acquire all 1300+ documents and reunite them with the other papers from Woodlawn in 2012.

Davis Acquisition--Purchase, 2012

In 2013, the AHC acquired a small cache of Pease-related materials from RR Auctions. These items were part of the estate of Robert Davis, a longtime Texana collector and founder/owner of the Texian Press in Waco. When the collection arrived at the AHC, a note that accompanied it stated that Davis had acquired the papers from Dorothy Sloan, a local auctioneer now based out of Llano. Sloan said that she had acquired them from Charles "Lucky" Attal, a well-known antique dealer and appraiser in Austin, and Attal said that the collection was purchased from an estate sale in the Enfield neighborhood. Therefore, it is likely that a neighbor had acquired the materials from the Woodlawn estate.

Barnum, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Bret Harte, Millard Fillmore, Dr. Louis Agassiz, and Henry Ward Beecher. Some of the oldest letters in the scrapbook are to John Milton Niles, including one from John C. Pease that is dated 1825. There is also a letter from John Milton Niles to his sister. Most of the items are glued to the pages of the scrapbook, but many are simply laid in between the pages. The items in the scrapbook are in no apparent order--they are arranged neither alphabetically nor chronologically.
