Floyd Cemetery

Pictures submitted by Julie and Geoff Horn. Thank you!
This is the family cemetery of Elisha Floyd.

Directions - Approximately 2 miles south of Anderson, near County Roads 446 and 246 off of FM 1774.

This cemetery was in terrible shape when found by Julie and Geoff. The property owner said that they were the second people to ask about the cemetery after John Maxwell surveyed it for the Grimes County Cemetery books. Cows had knocked over and broken every stone. Julie and Geoff attempted to set them back up.

Transcriptions are from the pictures of the stones.

And left us to bear our sorrow alone
