My Dad had a historical marker placed somewhere around La Grange/Fayetteville honoring his ancestor, James J. Ross, one of Steven F. Austin's original 300. I don't remember exactly where it is but have photos of it and the dedicating ceremony we had for its placement. However, that marker isn't listed on this site that I could find. It makes me wonder what else they've missed.
