Cherokee County, Texas
OLD CUNNINGHAM CEMETERY
Old Cunningham cemetery is located 5 miles west of Lakeview on FM road to Corine, on the J.D. Bearden farm.
Old Cunningham cemetery is located west of Jacksonville, Texas, just to the south of County Road 3305, about 2 miles east of Corine cemetery. It is on private property on the Bearden Ranch. It is on top of a small hill, and is covered other undergrowth. Only Two stones were well preserved, the other graves were marked by cut sandstones, some stacked into rectangles. There were about 5 graves readily evident. I did not check every sandstone block for inscriptions and do not rule out the possibility that there are other identifiable markers there. According to research done by Ms. Wynell T. Pugh, this cemetery was associated with an early church which may have been named Sandhill, Sandflat and/or Sand Springs. This survey was completed in 1991 by Gaylon White and published by Cherokee County Genealogical Society in 1997.
