Ross Cemetery

Hill County, Texas

Surveyed  May 29, 2006, by Linda, Aaron and Larry Looper.

          Ross Cemetery is located just south of the Johnson County line into Hill County on HCR 1418.  Directions from Cleburne:  Take 174 South to Rio Vista.  On the Cleburne-Whitney Rd. turn East onto Central Avenue go past Rio Vista Cemetery.  Go South on County Rd. 1204 which runs into CR-1100A.  CR1100A intersects CR1204 (still in Johnson County).  CR1204 becomes HCR1418 after crossing the Hill County line. Ross Cemetery is located on HCR 1418 on the right side of the road almost covered by large trees and brush. There is a home made metal sign by the 2nd entrance which reads “Ross Cemetery.” Send questions or comments to llooper27@sbcglobal.net (Warning:  hungry chiggers are present in abundance!)

Located in Northwestern Hill County near HCR 1418. View Map.
