A vital part of the Former Texas Rangers Association is to preserve the true history of the Texas Rangers and to provide landmarks relating to the Texas Rangers. The marking of the Rangers’ graves with the Texas Rangers Memorial Cross is just one activity that fulfills this mission.

In commemoration of the service rendered and the sacrifices made by James Maddox Bell of Company D, Frontier Battalion, the Former Texas Rangers Association has given a special grave marker. This marker will be placed at Ranger Bell’s grave in the Stockdale City Cemetery in Stockdale on Memorial Day, May 27, at 10 a.m.

James Bell served under famed Ranger Captain John R. Hughes in 1894-97 in the El Paso Region. Bell was born in Arkansas in 1865 and moved to Wilson County in 1874 with his family. Pat Baker Parsons of Luling discovered that her great-uncle had been a Ranger and applied for the Ranger Cross.

With the help of local historical societies and Ranger descendants, the Texas Ranger Memorial Cross Program researches, identifies, and documents the burial sites of Texas Rangers statewide and places the Memorial Cross at the resting place of the honored Rangers. The cross, with the mounted Ranger circle-star badge, is a fitting landmark relating to the preservation of our Texas heritage. The Texas Ranger Memorial Cross is furnished to members of the FTRA as a benefit of membership. There is no cost to the member for the cross or participation in the ceremony by the association. It is one of the many benefits afforded members; any member who is a descendant of a Texas Ranger can apply for the cross to be provided to them for installation. Membership in the association includes former Texas Rangers and lineal descendants of Texas Rangers. Associate memberships are available to active Texas Rangers and Special Rangers. Members receive a membership certificate, ID card, decal, and the newsletter, “Straight Talk.” The Former Texas Rangers Association would like to invite any Ranger, Ranger family member, or descendant of a Texas Ranger to join the association. The Texas Ranger Memorial Cross Program is funded in part by a grant from the Texas Historical Foundation, the Henderson family, Dale Williamson, and numerous anonymous donations.

For information on membership, Memorial Crosses, or donations, contact the FTRA by mail at P.O. Box 3195, Fredericksburg, TX 78624; by phone at 830-990-1192; or by email at jean@FormerTexasRangers.org.

For more information, call Pat Parsons at 830-875-2348.
