Gate's Hill Cemetery
Gates Hill Cemetery is the main African American Cemetery
for Bonham . It is located at the south end of town right on Hwy 78 south.
Originally covering a larger area the oldest section of the cemetery is
actually under the hwy , though some graves were moved .
Apparently 1952 was a year they plowed some under.
The majority of the markers were wooden and
all of those long gone. Grass fires , time and wood rotting away left
most of the graves unmarked in the older section.
land was the corner of the Henry Gates farm originally ,naming the
slope used for picnics and gatherings During that time the white Cemetery
was Inglish Cemetery. Sheriff Gates gave the land for a Cemetery
for African American families of Bonham. It is unknown how early
it was used but it is my guess it was the 1850' - 60's
There are many depressions
where graves are-- many of them with iris planted in them. Still I was
glad to find so many still readable. There were a half dozen stones that
were over on their faces from vandalism. We could not turn the stones over
due to how large they were.
The addition of over 40 identifications
of unmarked graves are death records , funeral home records and newspaper
If you have any to report please
