The Expiration

His final contribution to history, the remote Gazley Cemetery, overlooks his creek and prairie, as one of the oldest cemeteries in Texas. Initially buried there following his death on October 31, 1853, Dr. Gazley’s remains rested peacefully until October 1936 when they were exhumed by the Texas Centennial Commission and honorably re-interred in the Texas State Cemetery in Austin during a formal 1937 ceremony. They rest there today on Republic Hill in Section C-1, Row T, Grave Number Four.
