Catonville B Cemetery

"Catonville B","Cemetery","21 Dec 1894","Catonville B","This cemetery is located in the southwest quadrant of Red River County, Texas. GPS COORDINATES: Datum WGS84: 33 Deg 37.160N, 95 Deg 12.199W, El 469 ft. Local lore says it was a slave cemetery in the beginning and later was used by the local population. This cemetery is located directly south of the Catonville Cemetery and is overgrown and exposed to cattle traffic. During an hour long visit, we were able to locate 5 markers, either with all the information or at least part of it. The oldest marked burial we found was that of Susan Randles who died on 21 Dec 1894. This visit plus a reconstruction from county death records recreates it in part. We visited the site on 1 Mar 2004 and took the GPS readings and recorded the markers."
