"Texas" Alexander Historical Marker Dedication

This morning a historical marker dedication was held for Algernon "Texas" Alexander at Longstreet Cemetery in Montgomery County, Texas. The dedication ceremony was conducted by Larry Foerster, Chairman of the Montgomery County Historical Commission, and Coy Prather, "Texas" Alexander's biographer.

"Texas" Alexander is considered by many to be one of the fathers of Texas blues music, and today's ceremony and the marker honor his contributions to the genre. Mr. Foerster and Mr. Prather have expressed their thanks to everyone who contributed to help make this dedication a reality.

For those who would like to visit the marker, Longstreet Cemetery is located off of Highway 149, about 15 miles north of Montgomery, and just south of Richards, Texas.
