I would speculate if there is a marker, it is probably in the SW part of the county near Fort Griffin or Camp Cooper. This part of the county was first settled by Matthews, Reynolds, McKeichens & etc. I know there is a cemetery in Reynolds Bend on the Clear Fork of the Brazos that has some graves, mainly of the above mentioned families.
Fort Griffin, the town, was in Shakleford Co., just across the line from Throckmorton Co. It was pretty wild in the 1870's and murders were not uncommon there. It is considered a "ghost town" now. You might check into any books published concerning Fort Griffin, there could be a mention of him.
Related to any of the Gobers still in Throckmorton County?
Terry
