There is no evidence that Gen. John Wood is buried at the Texas State Cemetery. We believe a cenotaph in his honor once stood in the center of the first flower bed at the base of Republic Hill. The cenotaph consisted of a bronze eagle on a concrete base. The concrete base is all that remains today. According to the "Annals of Travis County and of the City of Austin", by Frank Brown, 1954, Wood and his wife, Eliza Baba Hunt, are buried in the vicinity of old Montopolis, Texas.
