"Dillard","Cemetery","18 Jan 1865","Dillard","This cemetery is located in the southeast quadrant of Red River County, Texas. GPS COORDINATES: Datum WGS84: 33 Deg 27.309N, 94 Deg 48.015W, El 368 ft. This cemetery is located south of Avery between FM44 and FM911 off CR 4430 6/10 mile south on the east bank of Dillard Creek. It is located back in the woods with no road leading to it. There is no perimeter fence but there are remains of an ornate turn-of-the-century fence around the Dillard family plot. Some of the markers have fallen over and broken. We had to dig up the marker for Polly A. Peacock. The oldest marked burial is that of Wm. N. Dillard who died 18 Jan 1865. This cemetery was surveyed by Lawrence and Sue Dale on 19 Jan 2000. We were accompanied by Nita Key, owner of the land, and we thank her for her kindness in guiding us there. We visited the site again on 18 Dec 2003 and took the GPS readings."
