      Inscription:

      SACRED TO THE MEMORY OF
      JOHN CHOATE
      Who was born in the State of Louisiana on the 25th day of July A.D. 1818 and was killed at his residence in San Patricio Co. Texas on the 3rd day of August A.D. 1869

      A good man and true has gone to his rest. He was an affectionate husband, a good neighbor, a warm friend and a zealous Mason.

      This simple tribute to his memory was erected by his wife who of all, esteemed him most for his many virtues.

      The grave of John CHOATE is adjacent to that of John Crockett CHOATE.

      According to "LEANDER McNELLY AND HIS DEATH SQUAD" by Lee Paul, Jack Helms murdered John and Crockett CHOATE during the Sutton-Taylor Fued.

      Miss Elizabeth SMITH married John CHOATE in 1858 in San Patricio County, Texas. I do not know if this marriage was to John Choate (1818-1869) or to his cousin, John Crockett Choate (1841/42 - 1869).

      Miss Catherine A. "Kate" DICKEY married John Choate (both of San Patricio Co., Texas) on 15 May 1865 in Refugio County, Texas. I do not know if this marriage was to John Choate (1818-1869) or to his cousin, John Crockett Choate (1841/42 - 1869).
