A Single Grave used to be evident along Rockport Rd in this group of trees. 
The Grave had a marker in the 1950s but that is gone now and only a mound marks it today. 

Since this posting it has been identified ~

This cemetery has been identified by Les Allen who spent his life in the Rockport community. 
 It is the old Union Soldier Cemetery. It was located on the "Old Laughlin Place" and swords, cannon balls and buckles with "US" were found there in past times. 

(Note from Susan ~ This is possibly the result of the measles epidemic that swept through Grayson County killing many soldiers in the area. There was a virulent strain of measles at that time.)

The single mound is south on Rockport Rd on the first curve where the road turns left then right again.  
The mound is on the south side of the short section of road that runs east and west before turning south again.
