Cemetery association to meet May 20
The Concrete Cemetery Association will meet Sunday, May 20, at 2 p.m. in the GVEC Meeting Room at 13849 U.S. 87 West in La Vernia.
Beverly Felts, president of the association, invites everyone to visit the historic Concrete Cemetery where many early pioneer settlers of the community are interred.
Claiborne Rector (1805-1873), a veteran of the Battle of San Jacinto, is buried in the cemetery adjacent to his wife, Nancy Kirkman Rector (1810-1904), whom he wed in Brazoria County on May 26, 1853.
Claiborne was previously married to Elizabeth Bailey Milburn on Aug. 9, 1841, in Brazoria County, and was the father of three children, James Pendleton Rector, Amanda Rector Tiner, and Emily Rector McClung.
Elizabeth Milburn Rector was a sister of Mary Bailey Polley of Sutherland Springs.
