Interred at the Founders Memorial Cemetery in Houston is one of the lesser-known founders of the Republic of Texas. Before the tragic end to his short life, he was a signer of the Texas Declaration of Independence, the first Chief Justice of the Texas Supreme Court, and an early candidate for President of the Republic. Today we’re talking about James Thompson Collinsworth, on Come and Take It!
