“The Texas Ranger Memorial Cross Program is funded in part by a grant from the Texas Historical Foundation and generous donations from Texas Ranger descendants.”


The Former Texas Rangers Association furnishes the Texas Ranger Memorial Cross to members of the Association to mark their honored Ranger's grave. These crosses are furnished at no cost to the members of the association and are limited to one cross per member. Crosses are shipped to the member's designated address and it is the responsibility of the member to have the cross installed at the gravesite.

The FTRA will assist any member, who so desires, to have a memorial service for their honored Ranger and will have a designated representative present at the service, whenever possible.

The Board of Directors feel, by furnishing these crosses, we are keeping alive the memory of the Rangers who have gone before us and are fulfilling our mission to create landmarks relating to Texas Ranger history.

If you need any additional information or directions, please call the office at 1-888-766-4055 or e-mail at JeanFTRA@windstream.net.
