TONG, JAMES F. (?–1829?). James F. Tong, one of Stephen F. Austin's Old Three Hundred colonists, was in Texas as early as November 1823, when he subscribed twenty bushels of corn toward paying the expenses of Erasmo Seguínqv as Texas deputy to the Mexican Congress. Tong was elected sixth corporal in the colonial militia in July 1824. He received title to a sitio of land now in Brazoria County on August 19, 1824. The census of 1826 classified him as a carpenter, a widower aged between forty and fifty. Tong was dead before October 24, 1829, when Hinton Curtis was administering his estate.
