Francis White "Frank" Johnson (October 3, 1799 – April 8, 1884) was a leader of the Texian Army from December 1835 through February 1836, during the Texas Revolution. After Texas gained its independence, he spent the rest of his life researching Texas history. In 1914, thirty years after Johnson's death, historian Eugene C. Barker edited Johnson's manuscripts into this book. Included is a document signed by Johnson concerning a civil suit, ruling in favor of the plaintiff to the sum of $6.50, dated March 2 1831, when Johnson was Chief Judge of Austin Colony.
