Shiloh Cemetery
Red River County

Shiloh Cemetery, See Old Shiloh as most of the references are to the older of two cemeteries in the county to bear this name. In the late 1800's it was referred to as the Shiloh Burying Ground. Near the turn of the century, however, it was determined to relocate the Shiloh Cumberland Presbyterian Church to Madras and a new cemetery was started there. From reading the early newspapers of this area the new cemetery was referred to as Shiloh Cemetery. At sometime after about 1952, however, preference of names was given to the current name of Madras Cemetery. At near the same time, the original became Old Shiloh Cemetery."
