Information on the Historical Marker at the Rockport Cemetery is incorrect.
The Historical Marker claims that the oldest marker is that of Emma Fulton who died in 1876. That is incorrect.
Actually there is an older marker in the Rockport Cemetery, that of Andrew J. Hogan who died Dec. 8, 1874. I photographed the headstone. A big bush is in front of the headstone, so it is partially hidden, but it is there.
I posted a photo of the headstone and other information on the following website:
Andrew J. Hogan is shown as postmaster of Rockport, Refugio County, Texas in 1869. He and Oliver P. Reid, Jr. were co-owners of "The Finish" Saloon in Rockport.
How does one get the erroneous information on the Rockport Cemetery marker corrected?
