W. A. Ferris

a.k.a. Warren Angus Ferris

Author Code: AWAF

Born: Dec. 25, 1810 - Glens Falls, New York, USA

Died: Feb. 8, 1873 - Dallas, Texas, USA

Best remembered for his Life in the Rocky Mountains (1842), where he described Yellowstone and its geysers, Ferris was a trapper and fur trader during the 1830's. He worked as a clerk for the American Fur Company in 1834 on a journey to western Wyoming and visited Yellowstone at this time. He then went to Texas and became a surveyor and in 1839 laid out the streets of Dallas County. He was awarded land as payment for his services by John Bryan, the founder of Dallas, which forms part of today's downtown Dallas. The land was reclaimed by the city at his death and his descendents have been unable to receive compensation or possession ever since. For years, Ferris lived on his land at White Rock Creek and fathered twelve children. He wrote his reminiscences for the Dallas Times Herald in 1873.
