Reverend Harrison Clay Trammell was a Methodist minister on the early Texas frontier in north Texas around Cass county. He served in the Confederate army, private in the 9th (Young's) Texas Infantry, Company D.
"Clay" was the fourth of seven children born to Pulaski Judge Trammell (1814-1901) and Frances Elizabeth Cox (1820-1853). He married Mary Jane "Minnie" Hampton (1846-1884) on 19 Sep 1865 in Cass county, Texas. They had eight children: Mary Frances, Eugene (stillborn), Emily Irena, Cora Nevada, Harris Asa, Josie Winnifred, Alphie Helon Trammell, and an unnamed still born babe.
Please note Houston's Hollywood cemetery bears only a marker for Clay Trammell. He was buried in the Old Velasco Cemetery in Freeport, Texas, on the banks of the Brazos River. His grave was washed away by a hurricane some years later.
