Directions to Powers Chapel Cemetery
 Submitted by Phyllis Ray Brooks

At the signal light in Rosebud (from Waco), take a left.  

Go all the way down to a curve in the road to the left and take a right.  

Follow that road all the way to a store and a house (Wilderville) and take a left.  

Follow that road for about 3 or 4 miles.

From Marlin take the road to Lott and before you get to Lott there is a turn off that possibly reads Chilton and Cedar Springs.  

Take the left to Cedar Springs and stay on that road.  

It should about 10 miles before you get to the Cemetery / Church / Tabernacle. 

Wilderville Store is about 3 or 4 miles further on. 

The Cemetery is on the left and the tabernacle and church are on the right.   You cannot miss them.

The “Grapevine”
Here is a picture of a grapevine that I know has been there at least 50 years. 

I played on this grapevine when I was a kid and I still see kids climbing and swinging

on its vines as late as Memorial Day Sunday of this year (2005). 

I bet every kid that visited Power's Chapel will recognize these grapevines
and recall fond memories of climbing and swinging on them.

 

Also visible in this picture is the back of Power's Chapel, the metal frames where tables are set up

for the big Memorial Day celebration every year and the cemetery

headstones way across the street in front of Power's Chapel.

     It is believed John Weldon Pearson is the person most responsible for putting this list together. Although, severely injured in a farm accident, for years John Pearson played a big part in the upkeep and improvements to the Power's Chapel & Cemetery and he was well known for being the area's local historian.  John had a lot of family and historical files that he collected over the years and these were deposited with the Rosebud Library.
