SIMMS CEMETERY, ARFICAN-AMERICAN

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.


This cemetery was recorded by Glenn E. Thrapp, 16 Feb 1986 and published in an early Quarterly of the Texarkana USA Genealogical Society.

 East of James Bowie High School on US Hwy 67W, about 1 miles. Take dirt road north about 1 miles until road makes a 90deg turn to the East. Cemetery is on the right about 50 yards east of the corner. Big foundation rocks are all that remain of the small church. Funeral Home markers are scattered everywhere, most not legible.

(Note: If there have been additional burials in this cemetery since 1962, we would appreciate you contacting us)
