An historic marker reads: “A native of North Carolina, Benjamin Rush Thompson (1811 – 1880) migrated to Milam County in the Republic of Texas in 1841. Thompson was a Mason and according to the census of 1850 a Methodist clergyman. He moved his family to Robertson County after 1855. Thompson set aside a portion of his land as a family burial ground in 1873, after the death of his son William M. (b 1852). Only five of the thirteen graves are marked with inscribed stones. Thompson and his wife Margaret (1819 – 1880) are both buried here.”
