Wonderful...visited the cemetary where T.C. Hawpe is buried today!!
That is, Trezevant Calhoun Hawpe born 9-16-1820 (in Georgia) and passed on 8-12-1863.
The TX Historical Society has placed a sizeable plaque by his stone... which gives a brief on his life and states:
-he was the 1st colonel of the 31st TX Calvary which was instrumental in the Confederate victory at Newtonia, Missouri. -served 2 terms as sheriff.(1850) - was stabbed to death by a friend after an argument on the county courthouse steps.
