A Mr. Ryder was one of those passengers who settled in what is now Morgan's Point, Texas. John Iiams, a sailor from Berwick's Bay in Louisiana, settled his family at Cedar Point in 1822. Dr. Johnson Hunter arrived just after Iiams. His boat was also damaged near Galveston. He was granted land at Morgan's Point, where he settled.
