To find Cottondale Cemetery go out Fm Rd 2123 to CR 3585 (by the Diamond Shamrock Grocery). Go south on CR 3585 about a hundred yards and turn right on CR 3571. The cemetery is behind the Community Chapel.
The gate has the date 1885 on it and there's a sign that gives Roy H. Morris 940-969-3423 as a contact name for lot information.

This picture shows the chapel on the east side of the cemetery.
