The picture above was taken in front of the wooden one-room courthouse at Charleston, Texas in Delta County about 1910. Back then lawbreakers in the eastern sector of the county were brought here for trial. A Justice of the Peace usually heard the cases.

 David Simeon Richard George Sr., my great great grandfather.

David Simeon  Richard George Sr., and Lucinda (McGuire) George [my great great grandparents], were the parents of Sarah Ann (George) Wilson [my great grandmother], and grandfather of Sarah Catherine (Wilson) Johnson [my grandmother], and great grandfather of Wesley Thomas "Wes Tom"Johnson [my father].

David Siemon George served in the Confederate Army during the Civil War. Records show him listed as Private David Simeon George, Confiderate States of America, 1 Company 2nd Regiment Calvery Texas.
 
A marker was placed at his grave to honor him on May 7th., 2005. The marker was an iron cross, pictured below. His grave is at the Charleston Cemetery, in Charlston, Texas in Delta County.

 The iron cross grave marker was patterned after the design on the Southern Cross of Honor Medals. On the front are the dates: 1861 and 1865 which represents the beginning and ending of the Civil War. Also on the front reads, DEO VINDICI which is Latin for, "Vindicated by God." On the back are the letters CSA meaning the Confederate States of America.   

The marker and dedication were sponsored by Mrs. Shirley Smith of Lake Creek, Texas and Mrs. Roberta Burchett DuPont of New Orleans, Lousiana. Below are a few pictures taken at the dedication.
