COVE SPRINGS CEMETERY, NACOGDOCHES COUNTY, TEXAS
 

     Cove Springs Cemetery is east of Melrose off TX 21 on the Black Jack Melrose Road. From Loop 224 travel 9.5 miles east on TX 21. Turn north (left) onto CR 350 (Black Jack Melrose Road) and travel 2.9 miles where the cemetery will be on the right.

     It was once a Methodist Church and they sold it to a Mr. Vail. Billie Wingate's grandfather Tom Bentley and Mr. McKnight rode a horse and drove a buggy for days to collect enough money to pay Mr. Vail back what he paid for the building. It then became a community church and meeting place. Several years ago Elizabeth Trimble and others got a historical marker and they meet bi-yearly. Donations may be made at Commercial National Bank in Nacogdoches, Texas for upkeep of the cemetery.

It is a well kept cemetery. Standing on the hill you can "almost" hear the Old Time Revivals once held there.

Tom and Measie Lambert Bentley are the grandparents of Billie Wingate. They raised their children in this church:

  1. Dora

  2. Joe

  3. Bertee

  4. Whitmil

  5. Alene

  6. Nellie Mae

  7. Valera

  8. Mattie

  9. Claudia (Billie's mother)

     This transcript was made in July 2001 by Billie and Dick Wingate then typed electronically by TXGenWeb Nacogdoches County Coordinator in August 2001.

If you have additional information or photos of any of these persons or if you believe there is an error in the transcript please email TXGenWeb Nacogdoches County Coordinator with the information but please DO NOT send images or attachments without an exchange of email first.
