Do not copy to put on another web site.  

We have information in our cemeteries that is from researching, not just from walking the cemetery, and there may not be a stone so it will be easy to prove they were copied.  The cemeteries are here for researching and personal use only not for submitting to other web pages.  This is hard work of volunteers.  We have the locations of the cemeteries if you would like to walk it and get your own listing.

From Texarkana go west on US Hwy 67 until you get to Robinson Road, then turn left and go south past the second RR track, then turn right or west on Findley Street and go for about 3-4 blocks and the cemetery will be on your left or south side of the road. The size is, about 2-3 acres, overgrown with brush and tree limbs. Some (partial) grave info and pictures were taken by Betty and Bill Sharp September 2003.  Betty also provided the directions.

Additional burials have been extracted from a variety of paper sources and information provided by various individuals.  Noted with *
