Corinth Cemetery





From Texas Historical Commission Marker:

"This historic graveyard is associated with the Corinth Baptist Church of Almira, to whom Ephraim and Mary (Hartsfield) Watson donated four acres of land in 1876. The earliest marked burial is that of three-month-old Terrissa L. Ellington, who died in 1878. Veterans of the Civil War, World War I, World War II, Korea and Vietnam are interred here. Containing both marked and unmarked graves, the cemetery is a reflection of the heritage of this part of Cass County. At the beginning of the 21st century, the Corinth Cemetery continued in use, serving the Almira, Carterville, Floyd Hill and surrounding communities."
