Red River County
Parks Family Cemetery, 4 Mar 1881,"This cemetery is located in the northwest quadrant of Red River County, Texas. From an earlier reading of this cemetery in RRCo TX Library. It was listed along with Tinsley and Woodland Cemeteries on the same pages. Since these are both in the immediate area of Woodland and there are at least two more 'unknown' cemeteries within a mile of the location we will for now place this lost family burial ground near the site. From a conversation with Spooky Garrett of Woodland Community the burial location is about .7 mile south of Woodland down the fencerow to the west and near the site of the old barn on the original Parks land. This information copied by Lawrence and Sue Dale on 26 Aug 1999. On 23 Dec 2003 we stopped and had a conversation with landowner Ruby Melton Ross and she confirmed the existance of the burials. She added that there had been no markers there since they acquired the land and that Parks kinsmen no longer came to work the graves."
