John Overton Trueheart Historical Marker

Inscribed

“After coming to Texas from Virginia about 1838, John Trueheart received a land grant for his service with Jack Hays’ Rangers. He then began a partnership in a Galveston General Land Agency with Memucan Hunt and returned to Virginia for his wife Anne Tompkins (Minor) (1804-86) and their children. Trueheart family leadership is reflected in the city’s Trueheart-Adriance Building and in several varieties of Oleander named for family members.”
