Cade Cemetery

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
by Eric Bonner Wood

Note - Actually in Navarro County. Included since at least half of its
residents lived in Freestone County.

Status: Active

Location: 2 miles west of Streetman on the Navarro/Freestone county line.

Directions: From Interstate 45 near Streetman. Head west 1 mile down Farm Road
246. There is a chapel at the cemetery entrance.

Historical Marker:

This burial ground originally served the pioneer Cade community, which was
established near this site in the 1870ís. Named for Cade Hayes, an early area
resident, the settlement included the surrounding farmland of southern Navarro
County and northern Freestone County. The cemetery was first used in 1876 when
a Mrs. Nelson, the widowed sister of Cade settler Andrew Smith, was buried here.
Ansel Coleman (D.1883) and his wife Alice (d.1910) who are interred here deeded
the property to trustees of the local Missionary Baptist Church in 1883 for the
establishment of the burial ground and for the construction of a church
building and a Masonic Hall. The earliest marked grave is that of John Watson
(b.1882), who died in 1884. Cade began to decline in population in the early
1900ís when construction of a Trinity and Brazos rail line bypassed the area.
After the church closed in 1932 the burial ground was neglected until a group
of local women formed a cemetery association in 1947.An early project of the
organization was the addition of a frame chapel for the site. Reorganized in
1966, the association holds an annual luncheon and business meeting the first
Sunday of each June.

Background:

This 2.5 acre cemetery was for the old Cade community prior to the railroad's
arrival to nearby Streetman. Land was given by Mr. Ansel Coleman on April 30,
1883. Later another 2.5 acres was given for the church. Later 3 acres given
for a school.


Oldest Unmarked Grave: Mrs. Nelson in 1876 (the widowed sister of Andrew Smith)
(before the land was formally given as a cemetery).

Oldest Marked Grave: The boy John Watson who died Aug 21, 1884
