Dr. Malcolm D. McLean, the compiler, translator, and editor of the 19-volume series
entitled Papers Concerning the Robertson's Colony in Texas, gives a brief overview
of empresario Sterling Clack Robertson. His colonization enterprise, which eventually
became known as Robertson's Colony had previously been referred to as the Texas
Association, Leftwich's Grant, the Nashville Colony, or the Upper Colony.
Following the Texas Revolution, the Robertson Colony area was broken up to form all or
part of the thirty present-day Texas counties, which have been listed under Leftwich's
Grant and the Nashville Colony.
