|The Mansfield Cemetery is divided into several sections, and the burials
are recorded by section. For ease of searching, each section has been sorted
alphabetically. The various Blessing sections comprise two basic sections,
that which was intended for family burial and that which was land once owned
by T. E. Blessing. The cemetery is located within the Mansfield city limits,
south on Main Street, turn right on FM 917, and right on Burl Ray Drive.
It was surveyed in the 1980s by Beth Harrison Canright, Beryl Steele Gibson,
Juanita Allmon McVean, Opal Allmon, and Elna Watson Hall. It is known that
some family information that is not inscribed on the stones has been added,
but it is not known which is added information and which is actually on the
stones. In some cases, this information is extensive enough to indicate
footnoting. It is also known that information for certain unmarked graves
has been obtained from other sources. The researcher will want to also look
at the "unknowns" as some of them may provide clues from their locations
in the cemetery. This survey was published in 1986 by the Mansfield Historical
Society, and is used here by permission. Transcribed by
Margaret R. Bates.
