MILES CEMETERY

 

    The Miles cemetery is located about four miles SW of Jacksonville, Texas. South from U.S. highway 79 onto FM 747, then south on County Road 3111. The cemetery is just over the top of a hill on the right side of County Road 3111. It is about two hundred yards down an unpaved lane on the right.  The cemetery is about 100 yards square enclosed in a barbed wire fence.  A pasture complete with cattle surround it.  Although covered by trees it is occasionally mowed, but leaves and twigs are about six inches deep.  Most graves are unmarked and some marked graves have broken and partially missing stones.  Row designations proceed from East to West. 

    CCGS member Sue Vaughn Taylor has some of her family in Miles cemetery and provided several names that are known to be buried there.
