     This cemetery has been recorded in books mistakenly as the 'Hollingsworth cemetery'.
But it was actually called the Ellsworth or Ellsworth Schoolhouse Cemetery. There was a church and a school were on the property.
    The Hollingsworth family did not arrive there till after it was long in use. Originally it had many wooden markers.  Guesses of up to 100 graves. Most were marked with wooden markers.
It is located near the intersection of Hwy 91 and 691, about one block west on the north side of the road. Between Sherman and Denison on the Grayson co. Airport Rd. (691) Located on the grounds of a commercial nursery.
