I know this tree. I had a farm about five miles from Rocheport in the 80's/90's. We had a solo Bur Oak only slightly smaller than this one. I measured them both. My tree had been hit by lightening earlier in its life. As a consequence it grew out like an umbrella instead of up. It was magnificent. I could have 300-400 sheep sleeping there in the shade on a hot summer day. The farm was all broken up and sold seemingly at random. But, I'm betting the tree is still there and worthy of historical recognition.
