Edwin Waller (1800-1881) served in the Texas Provisional Government's General Council in 1835. He was later sent by Brazoria as a delegate to the Convention of 1836, where he signed the Texas Declaration of Independence and helped draft the new republic's constitution. Oddly, payment here is to be issued from funds designated for the military, although Waller did not serve in this capacity during this time.
