This is one of the many lost or abandoned cemeteries throughout northeast TX but this one is unique in that it is heavily fenced and thus protected from cattle. It is located on the old Midway to Mt. Erie road south of Mt. Erie on the west side of the road on Circle C ranch property. This is private property. Please do not attempt entry without prior permission. The oldest marked burial is that of Thomas H. Sinclair who died on 7 Nov 1879, This cemetery was surveyed by Johnny Lee on 1 Nov 1998. On a cold blustery morning of 19 Feb 2004 we returned to the site to take the GPS coordinates. While there we had some time to probe for additional markers but had no luck. There is still a base for an obelisk shaped marker there but no marker. We did, however, find, underneath the marker with death as 1 May 1864 and top half missing, the footstone for it with the initials M. J. S. This record now reads M. J. Sinclair."
