This is a very large cemetery.  Customs say that when blacks were prevented from burying at the old Cooper Cemetery location, near the Burleson Cemetery, this area was then used as a cemetery for the blacks.  There is a total of 128 recognizable graves in the cemetery, however it is estimated that it contains at least 250 to 300 graves, many which are lost in the old part - which is the east side of the cemetery.  There are 43 recognizable unmarked graves.



  • Surveyed in Volume 3, pg 91 of the Navarro County Cemetery Records by Verna Bonner, Opal Bonner, Inez Lee, Gladys Rouse & Mozelle Pillans on March 27, 1981.  Photo survey in August 2006 by Dana Stubbs.
