The  Chapman Ranch Cemetery is located 2.3 miles west of the Chapman Ranch Post Office,
adjacent to Farm Road #70. Located in a vast open field, it is amid a solitary clump
of trees 100 yards south of the road. It contains, by estimation, 1.37 acres.
We found no deed records for this cemetery. Now seemingly uninhabited,the town of Chapman Ranch
 was founded in 1925. The town  of Chapman Ranch and the cemetery are presumed to be
on the 35,000 acres of land bought from the King Ranch by Philip Chapman in 1919. We were able
to determine the names of approximately 55 people who were buried in this cemetery. The earliest
bith date found on a tombstone was1892, and the earliest death date was 1926.  The cemetery
is inactive and is not regularly maintained. In 1990 posts were set for a fence to enclose the cemetery.


This was witten by: Dr. Charles Ward and Mr. Brooks Noel
