The name "Pecan Grove Memorial Park", granted in a new charter in 1964, commemorates the courageous and compassionate pioneer men and women of the vicinity. One of these, Dr. James Webb Throckmorton (1825 - 1894) was a Texas Legislator in the 1850s; became a confederate brigadier general during the Civil War, was governor of Texas in 1866-67, and was in the United States Congress, intermittently, from 1875 to 1888. Pecan Grove Decoration Day is held every spring. [1976]
