"Col. King, who is known throughout the United States as the cattle king of Western Texas, has at an expense of three thousand dollars, erected a very handsome monument over the grave of the late gallant Capt. L. H. McNelly, near the town of Burton. It was erected as a token of respect for the memory of the deceased, and in commemoration of his valuable services while in command of the State troops in Western Texas". [Source: Brenham Weekly Banner, January 18, 1878].
