Location:

Hwy 82/62 west from Lorenzo 2.5 miles, turn north on County Road 3900 and go 4.7 miles, turn east and go 1/2 mile to the cemetery.

History:

The cemetery at Estacado was started by the tragic death of Mary Ellen Cox, who died of a snake bite. Many of the pioneers are buried there, including Paris Cox, who died at the age of 40 from cancer of the throat.

Although the cemetery was used for many years, the city of Estacado did not actually own it. Through neglect, there had never been a deed made. In 1939 the citizens formed an association to clear the title and to care for and beautify the cemetery. It was found that the land actually belonged to A.J.(Arthur) and Hattie Linn Bryant, Estacado pioneers. When the association wanted to buy the land, Mr. and Mrs. Bryant offered to donate it if the Federal Land Bank would release their first lien. The bank removed the lien and a deed was executed, making the city of Estacado rightful owners of their cemetery. The association has made a beauty spot of the dejected old resting place. On a headstone of a grave in the old Estacado cemetery is this inscription: Isaac Paris Cox, Founder of Estacado 1879, Born in North Carolina, Oct. 17, 1846, died Nov. 2, 1888, In loving remembrance.

Estacado Cemetery is located on private property. The area is marked by groves of bois d´arc trees, planted by the Quakers nearly 100 years ago and a large Texas Historical Marker.

Lubbock Avalanche Story of History of Estacado


Many wooden crosses in the southwest corner of the Estacado Cemetery were accidentally burned several years ago during a clean-up campaign. Perhaps this was where Mary Ellen Cox was buried since there is no grave marker to be found.
