In 1690, when Spain's Franciscan Fathers founded Mission San Francisco de los Tejas in East Texas, they found a young Indian girl living with her people beside a stream. The priests found her a willing ally for carrying the Catholic Faith to the Indians and named her "Angelina (the Little Angel)," and the stream "the Angelina River."

Angelina accompanied the priests to Mexico for further studies, but eventually returned to East Texas to keep Christianity alive among the Indians. She also befriended early French explorers.

Angelina died in the early 1700s. Her grave site is unknown. In 1846, when Angelina County was formed, it was named for the Indian maiden and the Angelina River.
