A native of England, Elizabeth Coxhead Carleton (1816-1891) came to Texas in 1835 with her husband, Dr. William Carleton, a participant in the Texas Revolution. After leaving the state in 1836, the family returned to Texas in 1856, where Mrs. Carleton remained for the rest of her life.

The album contains poetry, autographs, sketches, and printed items. Many of the entries date from 1833-1834, around the time of the marriage of Elizabeth Martha Coxhead and William Carleton.
