The Navasota River runs thru part of Robertson County. My 3rd Greatgrandmother,(Anderson) lived on Anderson Lake, which the Navasota is connected to. She and some of her children died because they contracted Yellow Fever from the Navasota River. This was a major contributor to Yellow Fever. Her husband, and the rest of their children, moved close to what is now Shilo Cemetery, to get away from the contamination.
