Behind every great man…

…is a great woman.

Last weekend my husband and I spent the afternoon locating tombstones.  We went to a small cemetery near Adamsville, Texas looking for graves of four people.  We were unsuccessful on three, but we were able to locate the grave of Matilda Jennings.

Matilda Jennings Tombstone 2

Matilda’s marker is difficult to read, there is some veining in the marble as well as some wear.  Matilda was the wife of  Texas Ranger.  Their children were direct descendants of a defender of the Alamo.  It was my pleasure to have the opportunity to find this woman’s gravestone and be able to post it on to share with her descendants.  In doing so, I was also able to learn about a person and her family.
