Visiting Rockport, TX, I decided to visit the Rockport cemetary. While there I photographed several of the older, more interesting headstones and graves. My purpose is to share these photos with researchers for non-commercial, personal and family research purposes.
One of those headstones was that of BURNEY MILLS (full name SIMON BURNEY MILLS).
1862 - 1938
