Regarding Judge Pryor Lea Home. Pryor Lea was an early Texas public official and railroad promoter. Like many that came to Texas, he was born in Tennessee and, passing the bar in 1817, started a legal practice there. He served as the US Attorney in Tennessee, and served in the US Congress for two terms. In 1846, he moved to Goliad, where he worked to create a port on Aransas Bay and connect that to Goliad via turnpike and railroad. He served on the Texas Secession Convention in 1861 and later served as a State Senator. He died in Goliad in 1879.
