This tree planted on April 15, 2004 was grown from an acorn harvested from the live oak tree located on the site of Stephen F. Austin's death near present-day West Columbia, Texas. Under that large tree, a Texas Historical Monument marks the place where Austin died on December 27, 1836. It was through Austin's tireless efforts and dedication that the Republic of Texas was created. Austin was called "the Father of Texas" by General Sam Houston and a tree is planted in his memory in every county in Texas.
