Inscription. South Carolina native Z.N. Morrell moved to Tennessee at an early age and was ordained to the Baptist ministry at age 19. He came to Texas in December 1835, organized a church at Washington-on-the-Brazos in 1837 and was among the force fighting Comanche Indians at the battle of Plum Creek in August 1840. For 35 years Morrell traveled over Texas, preaching and organizing churches. He was also an early supporter of Baylor University, which received its charter in 1845. Also known for his writings and his missionary work, Morrell died and was buried in Kyle in 1883; he was reinterred here in 1945.
