(Homesite 3/10 mi.; grave 4/10 mi. north)

Delta County pioneer, born 1805. Settled in Texas, 1835, on brother Larkin Rattan's 1,000-acre land grant; later became site for city of Paris. Both Rattan families moved to Delta County in 1839. Hiram obtained two third-class land grants for producing grain and livestock. Larkin later joined the California Gold Rush, then returned to his native Illinois.

Four Rattan relatives were massacred by Texas Indians.

Civil War and politics divided family but never their devotion to Texas. Descendants include educators, military and political leaders.
