Obituary of Judge Isaac N. Moreland

1842 Obituary of Isaac N. Moreland

Another Hero of San Jacinto Gone.—The Hon. Isaac N. Moreland, late Chief Justice of Harris County, and the commander of the Artillery company in the battle of San Jacinto, died in this city Thursday morning.  His remains were followed to the grave by a very large and respectable concourse of citizens, including the masonic and other fraternities, and the independent military companies of the city;  and many of his companions in arms, who had stood by him in the field of battle, assembled around his grave, to pay the last tribute of respect to their beloved comrade.

As reported in his obituary, Isaac N. Moreland died in 1842, not 1840 as is reported on the 1836 Centennial Monument in Founders Memorial Cemetery.

See Wednesday, June 15, 1842 edition of Telelgraph and Texas Register newspaper, Houston, Texas, Vol. 7, No. 26, p. 3, c. 1.
