Alphabetical Listing Link

Surveyed Oct 20, 2005 by Donna Shreeve. Located 5.5 miles east of Jacksonville, TX off Hwy 79. Turn left (northwest) on CR 4209 and travel .6 mile to cemetery on the right.  This cemetery has a u-shaped road into the cemetery marked by white PVC pipe about 18 inches high.  The cemetery was divided into two sections; AGV1 is outside the road and AGV2 is inside the road starting at the SE corner. At the time of this survey some of the stones were almost missed due to grass grown over the flat stones; and some may have been completely covered. Refer to Pages 7-8 of “Cemeteries of NE Cherokee Co., TX” by Helen W. Crawford for surveyed graves found in 1972 no longer visible.
