Republic of Texas Citizen

I’ll admit it… there is a certain stereotype (among several) that people from Texas seem to exude more state pride than other states.

Maybe… just maybe that stems from the fact that Texas was once its own country.

Regardless of the reason or the perception, this metal marker adorns several gravesite markers throughout Glenwood Cemetery, and honors the fact that they once were actual citizens of the Republic of Texas. In fact, Anson Jones, the last president of the Republic of Texas, is buried in Glenwood.
