I had been in correspondence with Donaly Bryce, archivist at TSLAC, regarding the role that Samuel G. Hardaway played in the negotiations between the states of Georgia and Texas beginning in 1855. Georgia had requested that Texas compensate it for the armaments lost at the demise of the Georgia Battalion at Goliad. Texas agreed to a payment but it was decided to use the money to erect a monument to the Georgia Battalion at Goliad. No such monument was ever constructed. Instead, there were several decades of delay before a monument was ever placed at Goliad, and that one honors Fannin and his men. Bryce provided me with copies of the correspondence between the governors of the two states and a letter of support from Hardaway. I have those copies and can forward them upon request.
