The Tarlton Law Library at UT has recently put online the Texas Legal History Digital LIbrary, which is comprised of two sites, one of which is dedicated to the Texas Constitutions 1824-1876 and which aims to:

provide[] page images of the constitutions of Texas in effect from 1824 to 1876. Also included are copies of journals and debates of the constitutional conventions at which those constitutions were adopted. The resource links provisions of the several constitutions to those portions of the journals and debates where those provisions were discussed.

The second site focuses Texas Supreme Court and Court of Criminal Appeals’ Justices from 1836-1986, which:

includes, for each member of the Texas Supreme Court and Court of Criminal Appeals between 1836 and 1986, a portrait and biography, citations to opinions authored, and links to additional resources.
