Courtney Ann Fulton (1816?-1868?) married Leonard Waller Groce (1806-1873) in 1831. The couple lived at Bernardo Plantation. The town of Courtney in Grimes County is named for Mrs. Groce. In 1853, the Groce's moved to Liendo Plantation near Hemstead 30 miles outside of Houston. The plantation was the site of a Confederate recruiting station and prisoner of war camp. During Reconstruction, union troops under Custer occupied the land. The Groce's went bankrupt during Reconstruction.
