In 1841, Peters Colony Land Grant Company was commissioned to settle the North Texas area by the Republic of Texas. An interesting note is that the company was named after William Smalling Peters who published the song "Oh! Susanna". During this time the settlers from Platte County, Missouri settled on the west side, this included John and James Holford, who named the area that would eventually become Lewisville - "Holford's Prairie". In 1853, Basdeal Lewis purchased Holford's Prairie and named it after himself - "Lewisville".
