(February 22, 1820 - March 8, 1881)

A native of Tennessee, Robert Adams Terrell lived in Kentucky, Missouri, and Louisiana before coming to the Republic of Texas about 1840. A farmer and surveyor by trade, he was commissioned to locate headright land grants in several North Texas counties, receiving vast amounts of land as payment. He served the Republic of Texas as a soldier in several expeditions, and in 1861 enlisted in the Confederate Army. The town of Terrell, platted on land he surveyed, was named for him. His 1864 octagon-shaped house in Terrell is a Recorded Texas historic Landmark.
