SAMUEL L. MILLETT was a member of Captain Moseley Baker's San Felipe Company at the Battle of San Jacinto , and on May 22, 1838 he received Donation Certificate No. 222 for 640 acres of land for having participated in the battle.

Mr. Millett was born in 1799, in the State of Main. He arrived in Austin's Colony in April of 1831, and received title to one league of land, in what are now Fayette and Bastrop Counties. When making this application, Mr. Millett stated his Texas arrival date was 1831, yet his gravestone claims it was in 1827 and the Harrisburg Board of Land Commissioners recorded the year as 1834, when issuing his Headright Certificate for one labor of land. The actual date, I'm sure is forever lost in time.
The deed Records of Harris County, show Mr. Millett and his wife,living in Harris County February 13, 1840, when Mr. Millett deeded certain of his slaves to his wife, Mrs. (Clementina) Millett formerly of Washington County.

Mr. Millett moved to Seguin where he died November 4, 1863. He signed his will August 12, 1863. Mrs. Millett and Eugene B. Millett were appointed administrators of his estate January 25, 1864. He is buried in a marked grave in Riverside Cemetery, Seguin, Guadalupe County. Mrs. Clementina Millett was living in Ellsworth County, Kansas, on July 18, 1885, when she applied for a Veteran's Donation Certificate. She died in Fort Worth, February 1, 1903 at the age of ninety-two.

Children of Mr. And Mrs. Millett were Eugene; Alonzo and Leonidas, twin brothers; Mary; Lottie; Allie; Hiram; and Almira Millett. Allie died at the age of sixteen. Leonidas was killed at the Battle of Gains Mill in Virginia while a member of Company D, Fourth Texas Regiment, Confederate Army.

Miss Jennie Hollamon, writing for the Seguin Enterprise years ago, stated that Mr. Millett, a small quiet man, was a good citizen and lived with his family in a two story concrete house on the present site of the Lutheran Church. A few years later he died with cancer. His home in town was burned in 1867 after the Millets' had moved to their farm seven miles north of town."
