Digg B Cemetery

"Digg B","Cemetery","6 Dec 1903","Digg B","This cemetery is located in the northeast quadrant of Red River County, Texas. GPS COORDINATES: Datum WGS84: 33 Deg 39.685N, 94 Deg 55.551W, El 439 ft. This black cemetery is located across the fence just to the north of the White Rock Cemetery and is inside the leg and foot of the 'L' shape of the white cemetery. By local lore this was an old slave cemetery. While there are some depressions to denote burials, there have been no markers found here. This cemetery is reconstructed from funeral home books and other sources. The oldest burial we have been able to document is that of John Miller who died on 6 Dec 1903. We were on the site again on 15 Jan 2004 and did another search of the area for any signs of markers. Due to deadfall from the 2000 ice storm and overgrowth of briars and thorn-bushes, we were unable to find any markers."
