Description: Historical Note: Richard Niles Graham, born in 1881 to Carrie Augusta Pease Graham (1851-1882) and George Thomas Graham (1847-1897), was a Texas businessman and social figure who was instrumental in the development of numerous communities in Austin and throughout Texas. The Pease family was a prominent and affluent family that possessed substantial land and mineral rights in counties throughout Texas. The original Pease estate is estimated to have been around 3,000 acres and belonged to Graham's maternal grandfather and former governor of Texas, Elisha Marshall Pease (1812-1883). Graham married Anita Laura Goeth (1889-1953) in January 1910.
