Tarrant County TXGenWeb - Gibson Cemetery

 

 

Tarrant County, TXGenWeb

Gibson Cemetery
1863 - 1981

 

In 1853 Garrett and James Gibson, along with other family members, came to Tarrant County and established 160 acre homesteads in a settlement that came to be known as the Gibson community. Each brother donated land at this site for use as a cemetery. The earliest marked grave is that of Garrett Gibson's infant grandson, James Truitt (D.1866). All but two of the seventy three marked graves, many of which have only fieldstones, are for relatives of the Gibson family. There are several unreadable markers, and unmarked graves. The cemetery now serves as a reminder of one of Tarrant County's earliest settlements.

The cemetery is 4.5 miles northwest of Mansfield. West on FM Road 1107, turn north on Newt-Patterson Road, left on Gibson Cemetery Road. The cemetery is off the road on the left.
