Thomas Joseph Historical Marker

Inscribed

“Born in Hartford, Conn., Thomas Miller Joseph came to Galveston about 1841 with his mother Annis (Rogers) (d. 1879) and the family of his Uncle Alexander Edgar. Admitted to the bar, he became a Democratic Party leader, serving as Chief Justice (County Judge), Mayor, State Legislator, and Senator. He and his wife Mary Minor (Trueheart) (d. 1885) had eight children. Joseph may be buried over his mother’s grave site which, like others, was lost after several storms.”
