Grave of Anson Jones

Gravestie of Anson Jones

In Memory of

Anson Jones

Last President of the late Republic of

Texas: Projector and Consummator of her

Annexation to the Confederacy of North

American States: First Grand Master and

Implanter of Ancient York Rite Masonry in

Texas: The Revered of Senates and

 the Light of Cabinets!

The echo of his words lingers in the

Councils of his Country, alone unheard by

ears of deaf to the claims of merit, dull to

the voice of Honor and dead to the calls

of Justice;

To them the sand

To Thee the Marble!

Born 20th of January 1798,

Immigrated October 1833,

Departed 9th of January 1858,

Let him rest in peace,

Safe in the hand of one Disposing Power,

Or in the natal or mortal hour.
