Driving Directions From Marlin submitted by Ken Gates

From Marlin go thru town and take Hwy 7 to Chilton, Texas. 

Go thru downtown Chilton and continue a couple miles and it will dead end

Go to the right for a few blocks and you will see a sign to Cego. 

When you get to Cego (a ghost town with a couple of abandoned stores) take FM 1950 for a few miles and Blevins Cemetery will be on the right.  Half way between Chilton and Cego there will be a crossroad and that is Dot, Texas.

Driving Directions From Waco submitted by Bill Tye

Take Hwy 77 south to Falls County

Look for FM road 1950. It will be on your right side

Follow this road until you the pavement road ends

Blevins Cemetery will be on your right side. 

    Blevins Cemetery, which began in 1875 with the burial of Amanda Frances Ruble Taylor on family land. Her widower, Rev. Isaac Taylor deeded land for the cemetery to the Methodist Episcopal Church South, in 1879.  It received a Texas Historical Marker in a Dedication Service on October 24, 1993.
