Grayson County, Tx
A half-mile southwest of Kentuckytown, the Weber
brothers, Jacob and Joseph, established their family burial plot at the
site of their longtime successful grist mill and homes. But about fifty
years ago a grass fire destroyed the fence surrounding the few graves,
and the stakes or markers disappeared in the fire or into the soft earth.
As the wooded area became cleared of trees and brush, the spring at the
site continued for a time to feed the well that was dug and curbed there.
But after a tenant house at the spring-well was removed and the land brought
under cultivation, the well was eventually filled. Then the canebrake at
the marsh spot disappeared along with evidences of the cemetery. Today
it is all an open field. Though there were likely more than four graves
in the cemetery, the only known ones were those of the two brothers and
their wives. The few descendants who remained in this area were buried
in the nearby Vittitoe Cemetery.
