The San Miguel Cemetery is located about a mile or so west of Highway 16, approximately ten miles north of Tilden, near the small community of Cross. Murray sent it to me in August 1994. It is evident that Murray inventoried the cemetery, located a bit northwest of his portion of the Frankin ranch, on more than one occasion, the last being in 1993. He originally counted 92 graves, including 18 unknown. At the time he sent the inventory to me it included: 18 unknown, 8 pending, 98 used, 124 total. I can only assume that some of the pending have since been used. Certainly that is the case for Murray’s plot. He was a fine, memorable gentleman.

San Miguel Historical Cemetery

This site was already in use as a cemetery when, on July 31, 1883, Mary A. Maverick conveyed five acres of land to the McMullen County Judge and his successors to be used "Entirely and Exclusively for public school and graveyard purposes."  A one-room schoolhouse was built nearby and served the community until 1938.  The burial ground contains numerous unmarked graves, but the earliest dated grave is that of infant J. H. Byers who died March 10, 1875.  San Miguel Cemetery remains as a chronicle of the settlers, war veterans and residents of this area whose descendants continue its care through an association.  Historic Texas Cemetery - 1999
