Fannin County TXGenWeb
This cemetery location is named for the Rogers Family and also known as Dover or Dover Schoolhouse Cemetery.
This tiny cemetery is located on CR-4120, southeast of Ector on a dirt road. From TX 121 the cemetery is 1.7 miles westerly on CR 4120. The turnoff onto CR-4120 from TX 121 is 4 miles from the Fannin County Courthouse in Bonham. There are no signs but it is right on the edge of the road.
For an alternate route from Ector, take 898 to CR-4135, CR-4135 runs into CR-4120 at a T intersection, turn right for about 500 feet and make a left, then follow CR-4120 for about a ¼-mile to the cemetery on the right.
It has been very vandalized and is overgrown with weeds and brush. Be careful of deep animal holes (dancing skunks).
Only a few stones are left and access to several were blocked by downed trees. The whole cemetery is only about 50' by 70'.
