W. S. Parker is keeper of the State Cemetery at Austin, where the Confederate veterans from the Texas State Home are buried. There are about three hundred in the Home, and about as many buried in the State Cemetery, each furnished with a marble headstone with his name, company, regiment, State, nativity, and branch of service on it. Conspicuous in the cemetery is the monument of Albert Sidney Johnston. A stone in the middle of the star is in honor of Lieutenant Jones, the hero of three wars, the Indian, the Mexican Revolution, and the Confederate war. Back of the Albert Sidney Johnston monument are the white marble headstones of Confederates. [Foregoing is from E. B. Carruth, Capitol Station, Austin.]
