Who's buried in Boren-Reagor Springs Cemetery?

Original Survey by Mr. & Mrs. A. L. Feltenberger on October 4, 1956 &
Updated-Survey by Nana Lou Dudley on February 25, 1999.

From Waxahachie, take Hwy 287 South about 6 miles to the Reagor Springs exit sign. Turn at the exit sign and travel approximately one mile to the fork and bear right.
Continue for about 2 miles and turn right at the street sign, "Boren Rd." to its cul-de-sac. Then, turn right off the cul-de-sac on the unimproved dirt road that leads to the cemetery.

The oldest burial recorded is 1868. Many funeral home markers that can not be read were found. By Nana Lou Dudley
