The Absalom Delaplain League

In December 1854, Pastor John Kilian and the Wends who had called him as their pastor arrived in Galveston, Texas. Three more months would pass before they were able to acquire land, though. After a hard winter in Houston, the group finally received ownership of the Absalom Delaplain League in what is modern-day Lee County on March 20, 1855.
