History of the Cemetery

Dodge Mason gave his employees land to bury their families. The exact date is not known, but, it was over 75 years ago. At one time, the cemetery was part of the Mason Ranch. The second section of the cemetery was given by Edd Early. Located half mile south from the intersection of Hwy. # 85 (now Highway 334) and Hwy 198 on the east side of Highway 198. The cemetery is still in use and is maintained by the Elam Grove Baptist Church, Mabank, Texas. This is a Black Cemetery.

Directions To

The cemetery is located 1/2 mile from the intersection of Highway 334 and Highway 198 in Gun Barrel City, going north towards the lake. It is just as you pass the big curve in the road on Highway 198 on your right hand side.
