Note from Judy
Information on the Texas Historical Marker at the Rockport Cemetery is
The Texas Historical Marker at the Rockport Cemetery in Aransas County,
Texas, claims that the oldest marked grave in the Rockport Cemetery is
that of Emma Fulton who died in 1876. That information is incorrect.
Actually there is an older marker in the Rockport Cemetery, that of
Hogan, who died Dec. 8, 1874. I photographed the headstone. A big bush
in front of the headstone, so it is partially hidden, but it is there.
Andrew J. Hogan's headstone is near the fence line, inside the
I posted a photo of the headstone and other information on the
Andrew J. Hogan is shown as postmaster of Rockport, Refugio County,
in 1869. He and Oliver P. Reid, Jr. were co-owners of "The Finish"
I do not know who to contact to get this erroneous information on the
Rockport Cemetery marker corrected.
