NEW BIRMINGHAM CEMETERY
formerly Abandoned Cemetery
(photos by Kaye Slover)
Abandoned cemetery is located on the east side of HWY 69 south of Rusk. It it right off FM 1102 on the right. It is an old cemetery in the woods. There are only 3 marked graves now. About 40 years ago there were from 25-30 marked graves. The photo on the left is a picture of the road going to the cemetery. The photo on the right is a view of the cemetery. If you look closely you can see one of the markers about two thirds of the way up, a little to the left. The Longitude/Latitude reading is as close as I could get to the cemetery. Since the cemetery is in the woods I could not get a reading because of the trees.
