Laws Chapel Cemetery




A big THANKS to Grady Whitley for the use of his photographs!



From Texas Historical Commission Marker:

First Protestant church in area. Founded in 1853 by George Law and wife Martha, pioneers from Georgia. Members first worshipped under a brush arbor, then in a log structure. In 1859 joined Methodist Conference, began present building 1869.

Used here with permission from the author.

The Law's Chapel Cemetery was begun in 1854, a year after the Church was established. It wasn't until October 19, 1869, that the first six acres were deeded to the Church by Richard R. Law, son of the founder. Additions have since been made. This is the resting place for many area pioneers, but now is used primarily for members of Law's Chapel Methodist Church and nearby Piney Grove Baptist Church. Each shares the management and maintenance. The following inscriptions are recorded as they appear on the monuments. Several notations of interest are made in parenthesis as well as service records of veterans.
