Transcribed to Electronic form by Jo White

 

 

This grave lies nearly hidden just north of Olustee in Jackson County. . .the “resting place of a cowboy who helped drive a Texas herd across this country.

 

“According to a headstone  placed years after his death by relatives, he died on these plains in 1890.  His horse, startled by a rattlesnake, threw him and he died of a broken neck.  His companions buried him here.”[i]
