Crockett Tombstone

The following grave is in the Rockport Cemetery, either in Rockport or Fulton, Aransas County, Texas.

The grave of CROCKETT CHOATE. On the top slab of Crockett Choate's grave is written:

"SACRED TO THE MEMORY OF CROCKETT CHOATE
Who was born in the State of Texas
A.D. 1842 and was killed at the residence of his cousin in San Patricio Co Texas;
on the third day of August A.D. 1869."

This tells of a grave by the dashing wave,
A fond friends lip that did quiver,
Of an eye that's hid by a leaden lid,
And a voice now still forever.

Crockett CHOATE's grave is adjacent to that of John CHOATE
