They felt that when Patrick ,l,i k arose to present their sirle of iha case in nn arKumeiit before 'he Supreme Court of Ihe Republii of Texas, h« was not at his b"-t. Arx'oi'ding to one historian, in fact, they claimed he was so ^ drunk he didn't present their side worth anything." Whether for thix reason, or some other, the result was that H\B Perrys lost their ease. Col. and Mrs. Hill were awarded title to uropt?i-ly worth K fortune, even in those days. The land which Stephen had received for spilling Texas was already beginning to pass out of th« family. Not that the Perrys and Bvymis . were left without land. Accord- ™ ing to present standards, they owned fantastic amounts of property, with each of the children of their large family able to become a substantial landowner | with just his share of the Inheritance. The family was already beginning to split up, as all families must when the children are grown. At Durazno, a tract adjoining ^ Peach Point, Emily's oldest son, 9 William Joel Bryan, had built a rambling, comfortabla ranch house of logs, settling there with his brida, Lavinia Perry, who was James' niece. Even the name was a logical extension of Peach Point, being the Spanish word for peach. The second of tiie Bryan buys, Moses Austin, was named secretary of legation to the United States for the Republic of Texas. • On a trip to Louisiana in accordance with those duties, ha met his bride to he, a charming Southern belle named Adallne Lamothe, who was his wife for 14 vears. A pioneer Texas girl, Com l.ewis, was Moses' second wif«, whom he married two years alter lis first wife died. Tht third of the Bryan boys, Lilly Morrison, was a bit slower n choosing a wife, waiting until 1858, when he married a long-lim« sweetheart 1-aura II. Jack, daugh- ler of William Jack. Emily was well content dunpg lies* years, looking with pride and satisfaction at her grown and growing family, and still busy harm »nd hospitality kt Peach Point.
