According to Texas Death Certificates, John Britton died 26 August 1928 in Fort Worth, Tarrant, Texas. He was aged 89 years, 3 months and 23 days. He was born 3 May 1839 in Dayton, Ohio. His father was (no first name) Britton and mother (no first name) Fisher. [Submitted by creator of this memorial?]

Notes by Susan D. Engle about names on the monument: On the left are John and Mahala Britton with their son Franklin Britton and their unmarried daughter Hattie Britton. On the right, Anna Stroup was the daughter of John and Mahala; she married Lee Stroup. Howard Stroup, Jr., was most likely an infant who died very young. My conjecture is that he was Lee's grandson by his son Howard Stroup (1903-1982). Anna was Lee's second wife; they had no children together.
