T J Williams Tomb
On private property southeast of Illinois Bend

T. J. Williams
Born in Livingston County, Missouri, on March 20, 1849
Died in Cooke County, Texas, April 26, 1869

The granite tombstone (store bought, according to the locals) was brought from Austin, TX, on a freight wagon that was pulled by a large team of dray horses. Though unkempt, it's existence still honors the Missourian & the 13 settlers who were massacred in an Indian Raid.
