Description: Photo of a Citizen of the Republic of Texas Marker dedication for Rev. Daniel Parker, which was held during the Texas Sesquicentennial at the Pilgrim Cemetery, Elkhart, Texas. He was a Pioneer Baptist Minister who was born in Virginia on 6 April 1781 and died December 3, 1844. His wife was Patsy Dixon Parker, who was born January 17, 1784 and died December 1, 1846. On November 3, 1985, the Fort Houston Chapter of the Daughters of the Republic of Texas held this dedication of the DRT medallion that was added to the marker, which signifies that he was a Citizen of the Republic of Texas. The ladies who are standing around the monument are, from left to right: Cindy Selden Herrington, Bonnie Woolverton, Lynda Sansom, Gwen Routh and Odessa Woodard Crowson. Both Mrs. Herrington and Mrs. Crowson are descendants of Rev. Parker. The Daughters of the Republic of Texas medallion that had been affixed to the monument has since been stolen.
