Wilson Family Plot

"No. of graves 5.  Allen E. Ramsey."

"Located on top of a small round mound on the west bank of Wilson Hollow, about one half a mile north of its junction with Lake Creek in Palo Pinto County.

This consisted of Five graves in a row with unmarked stones at the head and foot of each.  It was the family of the famous Charles Goodnight, cowboy William J. Wilson featured in a story entitled "Bill Wilson's Gateway" in March 1968 Frontier Times.

Before the site of this cemetery was inundated by the waters of the Palo Pinto Lake, the remains were removed to a Mineral Wells Cemetery.

At one time there were only two settlers families in the Lone Camp area, that of Bill Wilson and of Tom Humphries, whose grave is in the East Santo Cemetery.  Bill Wilson served in the first Grand Jury called in Palo Pinto, TX."
