Searching For Grave Site of Col. Almanzon Huston - 1800s

Col. Almanzon Huston lived at San Augustine, Texas. He was in the war with General Sam Houston. Col. Almanzon commanded the 7th Regiment, Michigan Militia in 1831-1832 during the Black Hawk War, following which with his family he moved to San Augustine, Texas. There he was listed on the census of 1835 as an Inn Keeper, along with Elizabeth, his wife, and children, Emory S., Malvina L., Cordelia H., and Almanzon T.

An article I have on the history of Col. Almanzon reads that he....."died at the home of a daughter in Mississippi, while on his way home from Washington where he had collected his money." This money was owed to him by the United States Government.

He lived in Texas, but died in Mississippi, and we have been unable to locate information of his burial place. If you know anything about this, please contact me. Col. Almanzon Huston was my great-great-grandfather. Thank you very much. From Marge at;
