Directions - FM 2445 to Monument Hill Ranch, arched entry gate, sign, approx 2 mile S of CR 345. Near Stoneham.

I've seen it also listed as John McGinty Cemetery on a biography of Jesse Grimes. He and his second wife were buried here until 1929 when they were moved to the State Cemetery in Austin. Also known as McGinty Cemetery.
