Stephen F. Austin, the Father of Texas, was originally buried at this pioneer cemetery in Jones Creek. The cemetery was part of the Peach Point Plantation, which Austin considered to be his only home in Texas. The Plantation was the home of Austin’s sister, Emily Austin Bryan Perry. While Austin is buried in the state cemetery, his tomb remains here at the Gulf Prairie Cemetery in the Brazosport area.
