Robertson County Historical Markers
NUMBER OF MARKERS IN COUNTY-91
Have - 80 Need - 11
We have been visiting Robertson County since 2008 and some of these photos definitely need a redo. The County seat is Franklin and the county is named for Sterling C. Robertson a signer of the Texas Declaration of Independence. Franklin is the county seat but Calvert has the most historical markers.
There are a couple markers we have not located and they are the marker for Sheriff Bob Reeve which was not at the gravesite when we visited and Big Brazos Bridge which apparently fell victim to trucks. The we arranged with the owner of the property Ebenezer-Hearne Cemetery is on to visit but the owner had a family crisis in California and wasn't available. This sometimes happens when trying to view markers on private property. We have attempted to visit Wilson Capel Cemetery twice now without success due to poor road signage and very bad roads. We also have some new markers to capture.
23rd January, 2019 - We only very briefly ducked back into Robertson County to pick up a couple of the new markers. I would dearly have liked it to be any two of the other hard ones, but the weather was not friendly to driving on dirt roads.
