Surnames of Interest Collinsworth Locality of Interest Virginia, Tennessee & Texas
Comments: James T. Collinsworth of Tennessee and Texas, emabled me to qualify as a member of the First Families of Texas. Pamela Collinsworth, my ggg grandmother, her mother, Alice Thompson Collinsworth, and through her father, James Thompson, I am now a member of the First Family of Tennessee.


I have visited the cemetery in Houston where James T. Collinsworth is buried. He has a huge headstone that was presented to him during the 1936 Texas Centennial in honor of his leadership during the Texas Revolution.


"1.James T., b1795, was a member of the Davidson Co. TN bar in 1828 in partnership in 1830 with John BELL. He sold his land in Feb 1835 and moved to TX and became prominent in the affairs of Texas Independence and on Mar 2, 1836 signed the Texas Declaration of Independence. Before he died in 1838 he had been Sec of State of the Republic and Chief Justice of the Supreme Court and a Presidential candidate. (Brazoria Co.) Member of: Convention of 1836 Washington-on-the-Brazos (1-22 March 1836). Collinsworth, James Secretary of State (2nd) 17 March 1836 -- 22 October 1836. Collinsworth, James Senate Brazoria Members of: 1st Congress (1836-37) Columbia (3 October 1836 -- 22 December 1836) Houston (1 May 1837 -- 13 June 1837).


He stated he came to Texas only to take part in the struggle for independence and intended to return to TN. A major in the TX army, he raised a company of volunteers. An account of his death is found in The Texas Republic shere it states that he leaped from the deck of a steamer into Galveston Bay and drowned being under the influence of ardent spirits for a week before hand. he was bur. July 24, 1838 in the old city cemetery in Houston, the first Masonic funeral in Texas. A county in north Texas and a major thoroughfare in Houston is named for him."


COLLINSWORTH, JAMES (1806-1838). James Collinsworth, lawyer, jurist, and signer of the Texas Declaration of Independence, was born in Davidson County, Tennessee, in 1806, the son of Edmund and Alice (Thompson) Collinsworth. He attended school in Tennessee, studied law, and was admitted to the Tennessee bar in 1826. He was an ally of Andrew Jackson, Sam Houston, and other leading Tennessee politicians. From April 30, 1829, until early 1834, Collinsworth served as United States district attorney for the Western District of Tennessee. By 1835 he had moved to Matagorda, in the Brazos Municipality, Texas, and begun the practice of law. Along with Asa Brigham, John S. D. Byrom, and Edwin Waller he represented Brazoria in the Convention of 1836.


At the convention Collinsworth signed the Texas Declaration of Independence, introduced and guided to adoption a resolution making his fellow Tennessean Sam Houston commander in chief of the Texas army, became chairman of the military affairs committee, and served on the committee appointed to draft a constitution for the new Republic of Texas. After the convention adjourned, Houston, on April 8, 1836, appointed Collinsworth his aide-de-camp with the rank of major. After the battle of San Jacinto Gen. Thomas J. Rusk commended him for his bravery and chivalry.


From April 29 to May 23, 1836, Collinsworth served as acting secretary of state in President David G. Burnet's cabinet. On May 26, 1836, because of his intimacy with President Andrew Jackson, he was designated a commissioner to the United States to seek assistance and possible annexation. The mission failed. Later in the year Collinsworth declined Houston's offer to make him attorney general of the Republic of Texas. Instead, on November 30, 1836, he was elected to a term in the Senate of the republic.


When the judiciary of the republic was organized, Collinsworth, on December 16, 1836, was appointed the first chief justice, a post he held until his death. Also in 1836 he helped organize the Texas Railroad, Navigation, and Banking Company, and the following year he helped found the city of Richmond. He was a charter member of the Philosophical Society of Texas, founded in 1837.


In 1838 Collinsworth was a candidate, along with Mirabeau B. Lamar and Peter W. Grayson, for the presidency of the republic. The first published report of his candidacy was on June 30, 1838. On July 11, however, after a week of drunkenness, he fell or jumped off a boat in Galveston Bay and drowned. Most assumed he committed suicide. His body was recovered and taken by boat up Buffalo Bayou to Houston, where it lay in state in the capitol (see CAPITOLS). Chief Justice Collinsworth was buried in the City Cemetery, Houston, under the direction of Temple Lodge No.4; his was "the first Masonic funeral ever held in Texas." On August 21, 1876, Collingsworth County, its name misspelled in the act of the legislature establishing the county, was named in his honor. A state monument was placed at Collinsworth's grave in the old City Cemetery in Houston in 1931.
