You are in luck! page 5 reads:
Washington Quadrangle
Rock Island Church Cemetery(1960)
Latitude 30 o15'02", longitude 96 o 08'01". An abandoned and densely overgrown cemetery near the Brazos River at Brown College. Since the following inscriptions were recorded, some of the stones have been bulldozed and destroyed to make room for a negro graveyard.

(Crawford), Ann f., Second wife of J.F. Crawford, d. in Houston, Tex 1852
Crawford, John F., an unusual monement consisting of a square brick pedistal, surmounted by a marble base and shaft. The name apears on one side of the marble base, on another ar the words "Horse Show," the third side bears the inscription "New Orleans," while upon the fourth is carved the Federal shield and eagle with the motto "E pluribus unium."
Crawford, John F., (this grave is near the monument described above)
b. Rockbridge, Va. 1793, d. Houston, Tex., 1856
Crawford, Sarah Jane,--Garrett--Chappell--, b. in Mobile, Ala. 1824, d in Washington Tex 1849.

(the rest buried and listed are 8 with last name Felder and one name of Greer).
I wrote the above as it reads from the book "Cemetery Records of Washington County 1826-1960" by Judy and Nath Winfield, Jr.
