Robert W. Brahan (6/9/1811 - 4/16/1885, son of General John Brahan of Tennessee, is buried in the Concrete Cemetery in Guadalupe County, Texas near the town of LaVernia which is in Wilson County. The Cibolo Creek divides Guadalupe County and Wilson County. A son, Robert W. Brahan (6/1/1833 - 5/1/1859) is buried nearby. Robert Brahan was married to Martha Haywood, daughter of Judge John Haywood of N.C. Robert and Martha lived in Alabama (1835) and then to Mississippi(ca. 1840) and then to Texas in 1854. Robert was a physician and the Masonic Lodge of La Vernia is named in his honor. "Brahan Masonic Lodge # 226".
I have done extensive research on the old Concrete Cemetery in order to apply for a state historical marker and find Major Robert W. Brahan a very interesting character indeed. I found his obituary in the April 1885 weekly San Antonio, Texas Express News. Does anyone know where Martha Haywood Brahan is buried? She is not in the Concrete Cemetery. Hope to hear from a descendant of this family.
