A Texas Historical Marker at the Hall Cemetery in Houston County, Texas indicates that the earliest marked grave is that of this Mary A. Sharp (1843-1876). This historical marker is located on FM 229, 10.9 miles NW of Crockett. According to Mary's daughter, Ida Mae . . . "My mother, Mary Alexandrien Lamar [sic] Sharp . . . was of French extraction, but I know nothing about her family history, except that she owned land on the Robeson Survey, Liberty County, Texas, and I still own my inherited interest in this land. My mother died when I was four years old, and is buried in the Hall Cemetery on the old Hall Plantation on Elkhart Creek, where I was born. There is a marker at her grave." Mary Alexandrien Sharp nee Lemaire, aka Nellie, is mentioned frequently in the 1860-1866 Journal of James Madison Hall. His account of her marriage to Sam is the only known written record of that event.

Inscription:
. . . . . . . . . .
A family historian has made the statement that she visited this cemetery with her father many years ago . . . and that at that time there were markers here for various members of the Hall family who originally owned the land where this cemetery is located . . . she is aware that those markers no longer exist . . . but does not know what happened to them . . . C Johnson has also informed us that "In the Houston County Cemetery Book Second Edition, 1978, Nellie's headstone was read. Page 150."
