Directions: From IH-10 take Farm road 1442 and go north about 2 miles and cemetery will be on right behind fence. Joseph Linscomb (1798-1873) moved from Louisanna to Texas about 1835 and served in a volunteer milita unit during the Texas Revoultion. He and his family settled in Jefferson county by 1841. The area became Orange county in 1852. Linscomb deeded one acre of land for use as a family cemetery and his wife Denise (Peveto) became the first person buried here. Decendents and friends also are intered here. Still active, the cemetery contains more than 100 marked graves and some unmarked graves. The site is maintained by family members.
