Farwell brothers who bankrolled the building of the capitol in 1885 and were paid in land in the Texas Panhandle. The infrastructure wasn't there yet for settlement so they started the largest cattle ranch in the USA at the time with 150,000 cattle. Of course they started it right when cattle prices bottomed out and they never made money as ranchers.
The Farwell brothers never benefited from the land, dying shortly after having to sell it off to pay bond holders. But their children and descendants did!
