Douglas Cemetery

 

 

Douglas Cemetery is located about two miles southwest of Bullard School. From the intersection of FM 2493 & FM 344 go west .3 miles to School House Rd. Turn left on School House Rd & go .5 miles, the cemetery is on the right. A double fence, brick pillars with wrought iron, encloses the cemetery, the first surrounds the grounds which has walkways and trees like a park. The second fence surrounds the cemetery itself. The entire complex is immaculately maintained. The markers are all white marble and very ornate, some with statues that are almost lifesize. This cemetery is exclusively for Douglas related families and both fences are kept locked. The trust department at Southside Bank in Tyler must be contacted for an appointment should you wish to tour the cemetery. The cemetery survey was done by Gaylon White in Dec 1996 and was published by the Cherokee County Genealogical Society in 1997.
