Elm Creek Cemetery
Caddo Mills, Hunt Co., Texas

surveyed February 17, 2002 by Patricia Nall & Elaine Nall Bay

 

Travel Hwy. 380 west out of Greenville, Hunt Co., Texas.
Turn west (left) onto Hwy. 66.
Travel approximately 4.5 miles to CR2141.
Turn north (right) onto CR2141, which is a single lane, gravel road.
This county road will make a sharp right curve and become a single lane, dirt road.
The road will dead-end in a very small clearing. The small cemetery sits partially hidden by overgrowth and roadside debris. It is in desperate need of regular maintenance.

 

The cemetery is in very poor condition, being covered with growth and fallen or cut down trees.  The entrance gate and fence have fallen over.  A dump has been created on the west side of the cemetery. About 80% of the tombstones are either broken, fallen over or illegible.  If the cemetery is not cleaned of debris and undergrowth and maintained in the near future, it will virtually disappear. Due to the condition of the cemetery, it is impossible to list the burials ‘in order’.  The listing of burials below is in alphabetical order and is not indicative of burial plot location within the cemetery.
