To G. W. Wheeler of Collinsville, native of Grayson County, goes
the honor of bringing to light in this pre-centennial year, a little-known
historical fact: That Grayson County6 has buried within its borders a hero
of the San jacinto Battlefield.
Mr. Wheeler has pointed out an unmarked grave in the little cemetery
of Christian Chapel, near Sadler, which contains all that remains of the
Kentuckian who came to Texas to aid in her war for independence.
The interest of Judge G. P. Webb, president of the Grayson County
Historical Association, was aroused by Mr. wheeler. Judge Webb busied
himself in the task of securing positive evidence of legal dependability,
of the fact that the Kentuckian, Louis Wilmouth by name, had fought in
the battle of San Jacinto.
As result, the county is to do honor to the verteran's memory by
means of a proper marking of the brave and the building of an all-weather
road to .......incomplete article.
