Marathon, Texas 

Marathon has had one cemetery since 1902. The east side of the cemetery was reserved for the Mexican population and was referred to as the "Mexican" or "Latin" cemetery.   Marathon Cemetery is no longer segregated. In 1995, the fence separating the two sections (anglo and latin) was removed. However, burials still seem to fall along racial lines.    Prior to 1902, it seems as though burials were catch-as-catch can. Some people were buried near the Collins (or Chambers) hotel. These sites are pretty much lost.   Some people were buried at Fort Pena Colorado.   This cemetery was the first "official" cemetery for Marathon.   Some folks were buried south of town in Beakley Draw. Beakley Draw was prone to flooding, and pointed up the need for a permanent, and safe, cemetery. Thus, Marathon Cemetery was established in 1902. Information furnished by Robert Shaw, Aug. 2009

A survey of the Anglo cemetery shows that there are 587 marked graves & approximatley 127 unmarked or lost graves.  August 1984  (DESTROYED BY TORNADO)

Loc: Three miles west of Park Road 118 (at the "curved" highway bridge) along the River Road. Searchers must locate a sloping cuesta (hill) four-tenths (.4) mile north of the road. If the lane leading in is blocked due to BBNP duncery one must park safely along the main road and walk in. The cemetery is located on the lee (southern) side of the said cuesta and is easily visible upon approach. There are several above ground false vaults here as well as some interesting ornamentation.
