PIERCES CHAPEL CEMETERY

    

(Photos by Amy Cumbie)

Submitted by Ira Galen White

 Pierce's Chapel cemetery is located to the South and West of Jacksonville,
Texas, On County Road 1904, just South of the Pierce's Chapel community on 
the right.  It is a medium sized cemetery enclosed in a chain link fence. 
There are few trees left as it was in the path of the Nov 1987 tornado. 
The entrance is on the south side.  It is well maintained.
This survey was completed in August 1996 by Gaylon White and Gordon Bennett.
