Historical Marker
    As a member of Stephen F. Austin's Old 300, William B. Bridgers received land in Texas in 1824. He and his wife, Cynthia Ross (died c. 1831), had three daughters. Bridgers was a member of Capt. John Alley's company, which rushed to aid Col. John H. Moore of Fayette County during the Texas Revolution. He married Eliza Lyons Tribble and moved to Fayette County. They owned land in four counties and were the parents of six children. A farmer, rancher and hat maker by trade, William B. Bridgers served as a Fayette County justice of the peace and postmaster of Lyons. His burial site is undocumented, but possibly he is buried here in the Lyons Family Cemetery. (2001)
