Notes from Barry Caraway:


Location: From the city of Burnet go south on Hwy 281 to County Road 340A; take a left, then take a right on county road 340 (Mormon mills road). A sign there says "Holland Cemetery", with an arrow pointing to the right when you take a right on 340. Go down till you see the Holland Cemetery sign on the left, take a left at the sign. You have to open an unlocked gate. Follow the road, keeping to your left. The road will go up a hill and will dead end at the cemetery. It is best to use a pickup truck because in some parts of the road a car can bottom out. If it rains you will need a 4X4 or a mule to get to the cemetery; but they try to take care of the road.

This cemetery is taken well kept and it has a great view of the Hill Country. The cemetery is still being used by family members only.

Unknown graves 2.

Note: About 300 feet south from the cemetery, in a rock enclosure, is the unmarked grave of Emaline Holland, b. 2 Mar 1861, d. 17 Oct 1867, the first daughter of Samuel Ely Holland. There are about 7 other unmarked graves nearby; I was told those graves were the graves of Indians.
