  • Notes 
    • THRUSTON, ALGERNON SIDNEY (1801-1864). Algernon Sidney Thruston, soldier and lawyer, was born on May 19, 1801. He married Harriet C. Jacques of St. Louis, MO. They resided in Louisville, Kentucky, where Thruston practiced law. George C. Childress q.v. recommended Thruston to Stephen F. Austin q.v. as a man of quality and a good soldier. Thruston arrived in Houston in September 1837, began practicing law with Henry W. Fontaine, and became involved in local politics. Thruston served as commissary general for the Republic of Texas q.v. in 1837 and as quartermaster general in 1838. Sam Houston q.v. nominated him for attorney general on November 13, 1838, but Mirabeau B. Lamar q.v. became president before the nomination was approved by the Senate, and Thruston never filled the position. He received a headright and bounty certificate from the republic. He was a member of the Masonic Holland Lodge No. 1 of Houston and was a charter member of the Grand Lodge of Texas. He died on March 5, 1864.
