Inscription.  Jourdan Campbell (1867-1938) and his family moved to Atascosa County by 1870; his father John Campbell founded Campbellton. Jourdan married Alice Louise Marr in 1897 and the couple had eight children. Jourdan became County Commissioner in the 1890s, and in 1907 with Col. T. H. Zanderson bought the 33,760 acre Tobey Ranch, part of which would become Jourdanton. Once the town was formed, Campbell was vice president of the bank and lobbied for a railroad. Jourdanton became Atascosa County seat in 1910. Campbell also supported a 65-mile hardtop highway project linking Jourdanton to the principal communities of Atascosa County. Jourdan Campbell was the driving force behind Jourdanton's creation, prosperity and growth.
