M.A. McBride was the postmaster of Cedarfield, which was in that west central part of Grayson County, He was recorded as such on 26 Jun 1868.

I suspect he built the monument before they left for Victoria Co. I have not found them yet in a 1870 record.  ut I think this is the couple in Victoria County.
