WARREN, JOHN (1800–?). John Warren, legislator and civil servant, was born in Massachusetts in 1800. He came to Texas from Louisiana in 1825 but probably returned to the United States for some years. In 1842–43 he represented Brazoria County in the House of the Seventh Congress, serving on the committee on naval affairs and the committee on privileges and elections. In 1843 he was agent for the defense of the coast near the mouth of the Brazos River and had a contract to carry mail from Galveston to Matagorda.
