 Anson Jones 1798-1858. Master First Lodge in Texas, 1835. First Grand Master of Texas, 1837. Erected in commemoration of the Centennial of his death by Anson Jones Lodge No. 1313 A.F.& A.M. FLAT GROUND MARKER: Last President of the late Republic of Texas, Projector and Consummator of her Annexation to the Confederacy of North American States. First Grand Master and Implanter of Ancient York Masonry in Texas: The Revered of Senates and The Light of Cabinets! The echo of his words lingers in the Councils of his Country,, alone unheard by ears deaf to the claims of merit, dull to the voice of Honor, and dead to the calls of Justice; to them the sand; to thee the marble! Born 20th of January, 1798; Immigrated October 1833; Departed 8th of January, 1858. Let him rest in peace, safe in the hand of one Disposing Power, or in the natal or the mortal hour.
