Burial - Daniel Davis, Elizabeth Davidson Davis1849 , Inner Town Square, Gonzales Texas

Both Daniel Davis and his wife, Elizabeth Davidson Davis (as well as other early settlers) were buried in the original Gonzales Cemetery which was located in the inner town square designated in 1825 as a cemetery. In 1984 this area was declared "public land" by the City of Gonzales and the remains of those buried in the old cemetery were exhumed and transferred to a common unmarked burial site in the newer Gonzales City Cemetery. Historical markers are located on the site of the original cemetery square and also at the newer Gonzales City Cemetery.

          Historical Marker at Original Gonzales Cemetery:   This block of the Inner Town was designated in 1825 as a cemetery. Traditionally the burial ground for Nicholas Peck, a soldier of San Jacinto; Daniel Davis, a soldier in Mier expedition, and his wife, Elizabeth; along with other early-day residents. 
         Historical Marker at the Newer Gonzales City Cemetery:     By tradition, remains of early settlers buried at first in Cemetery Square, inner town of Gonzales, rest here in a common grave. Others buried here include key men in Texas Revolution, Dr. George W. Barnett, Maj. Valentine Barnett ( quartermaster ), and Matthew Caldwell.
