Emma Bocanegra Cano

Emma Bocanegra Cano, a longtime Victoria resident, was posthumously named a member of the Daughters of the Republic of Texas. She is the daughter of Thomas Hardee Walker and Maria Bocanegra. She was a direct descendant of Joseph Henry Walker, her paternal grandfather, and John Swanson Yarbrough, her paternal great grandfather, who served in the Texas Revolution. The family recently held a graveside celebration and had the Daughters of the Republic of Texas dedication, at which the DRT medallion was placed on her headstone. A Texas flag was also flown in her honor over the state Capitol on Cano's birthday, July 18. It will be given to the family.
