You may find the following information about Athens, Tx from "The Handbook of Texas Online" to be of interest. It mentions a Levi S. Cogburn, potter, 1857.

...The early years witnessed a pottery (Levi S. Cogburn, 1857), a brick plant (H. M. Morrison, 1882), a cotton gin, a cottonseed oil mill, a compress, a newspaper (1873), the arrival of the Cotton Belt (1880) and Texas and New Orleans (1900) railroads, a bank (1887), and a telephone company (1901).
