Floyd Hill Cemetery

From one who has made the trip to Floyd Hill Cemetery after a rain. You may well get stuck.  This is a sand/dirt road and it will be 10-12" of mud.  Then once it dries out, you have bad ruts.  I was in an SUV and the ruts were so bad I still drug bottom.


From Texas Historical Commision Marker:

"On Oct. 9, 1854, Killis S. Floyd donated a four-acre tract to three trustees of the Missionary Baptist Church, afterwards known as Floyds' Hill Church. The Rev. John Massey and the Rev. C. G. Stephens organized the congregation on Dec. 10, 1854, with 15 charter members. Worship services were held at the Frifogle house, former home of a pioneer family, until a log church was completed in 1855. About 1858 the log building was replaced by a one-room frame structure, erected with the help of slave labor. Blacks worshiped here until Floyd gave land for a separate black church. The adjacent Floyds' Hill Cemetery, which contains about 200 known graves, served the pioneer families who migrated to this locality from Alabama and Georgia in the 1850s. The oldest stone marks the grave of Mary Bryan (1850-1858). The farming community of Floyds' Hill declined after World War I, and regular church services ended in 1926. When a storm damaged the church building in 1932, volunteers erected a new frame structure on the original foundation. Floyds' Hill Church - Cemetery Association, established in 1948, sponsors an annual homecoming for descendants of early settlers."
