Birth: Mar. 7, 1832
Louisiana, USA
Death: Jan. 22, 1873
Harris County
Texas, USA

The first wife of Joseph Watkins Fuqua. Charlotte died in one of the early Houston epidemics -- Chlorea or Yellow Fever.


It is noted that the City of Houston had taken over part of Founders Memorial Park Cemetery in order to put in a street - that street is today called Valentine! At least they named the street after them. Note: Founder's was the earliest Cemetery in Houston; before Glenwood Cemetery.

Unfortunately, the City of Houston did not remove the graves, thus not leaving a grave marker for the families.

The following graves are believed to be buried underneath the Valentine street:

1. Charlotte Lydia Valentine Fuqua

2. Jacob Valentine, the father of Charlotte Lydia Valentine Fuqua

3. Three children of Thomas E Elsbury and Mary Anne Knight:

a) Edward Elsbury
b) Cora Elsbury
c) Anne Marie "Annie" Elsbury

4. William Elsbury, the brother of Thomas Elsbury
