General Notes: Husband - William Oliver CONNELL
==========================================================================================

Connell Cemetery
Year Marker Erected: 1997
Marker Location: 3 mi. SE of Brownwood on FM 2525, right on CR just before FM 2126
Marker Text:
              William Connell came to Texas with his family in 1834. He later served in
the Republic of Texas Army, the Texas Rangers, and the Confederate Army. Connell
Cemetery, believed to be one of the oldest in Brown County, was probably in use before
1861. When William and Loumisa Wills Connell buried their son William Archibald in 1866,
they erected what is believed to have been the first headstone on this site. The last was
that of Edward Bruce McCallum, dated 1949. Sixteen families are noted; over twenty graves
remain unmarked. Connell Cemetery was deeded to Brown County in 1893. (1997)

As a teenager in 1836, he and his father Sampson Connell, a wagonmaster for the Texian
Volunteer Army delivered the last load of supplies before the siege and fall of the
Alamo. William fought in the Waco Indian Wars. He later served in the CSA. He was the
County Treasurer of Brown County prior to the fall of the Confederacy. Governor Davis
appointed William Connell as the Treasurer of Brown County after the Civil War. He
served in this capacity until he became a County Commissioner after many years of
service. [Robert Connell]
