Welcome to Freestone County, TX, a part of the TXGenWeb project.  We are here to help you in your endeavors to research your ancestors in Freestone County.

Freestone Co. is located in northeastern region of Texas, approximately 85 miles south of Dallas on Interstate 45.

If you have contact info for the caretakers of any of the cemeteries please contact me.  I am in the process of making a directory of their names so when I am contacted about a cemetery I have that info.

New The American Legion Post #238 of Teague, Texas will hold a U.S. Flag Retirement Ceremony on June 14th at the Veterans Remembrance Park. The park is located on North 8th Avenue in Teague. The time for the retirement ceremony will be 9:00 a.m.
The purpose of the ceremony is to properly retire old, torn, or faded U.S. Flag with dignity and respect. During times past and even today, it has been shown on television being burned improperly. This is not the proper method of disposing of the U.S. flag. The Legion would invite all to come out and view the proper ceremony on June 14th. That date is Flag Day. So please come out and observe the ceremony and support our local veterans.
If your flag is torn, faded in color or just plain worn out please bring them to one of the drop locations and the folks will take care of it for you. Should you wish to have your name included as giving the flag please leave that with them. We’d appreciate it also if businesses, clubs, orginizations, etc would leave their name so we could honor them during the ceremony.
We have set up two locations for you to take your used flag to be dropped off. These locations are the Teague Public Library located on the corner of Main Street and 4th Avenue in Teague, and the Gibbs Memorial Library in Mexia located at 305 E. Rusk Street. Both of these locations have graciously allowed the Legion to place a plastic tote inside their library for you to place your flag for the retirement ceremony
Teague Library hours are Mon – Fri 8:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. Saturday 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 noon.
Gibbs Library hours are Mon – Fri 10:00 a.m. – 6: 00 p.m. Saturday 10:00a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
The flags will be picked up periodically by the Legion with final pick up scheduled for Friday, June 13th.
Thank you very much,
Carl Conkling
Public Relations Officer
American Legion Post #238
