Jane followed her husband, Dr. James Long to Bolivar Point, a peninsula opposite of Galveston Island. On an excursion to Mexico City, James was killed, leaving Jane pregnant and alone in an uncivilized territory. Jane opened up a hotel in Brazoria in 1832 where she entertained all the significant players in the Texas Revolution. Her determination and strength won her the name “Mother of Texas.”
