Smith Family Cemetery

Smith Family Cemetery, 17 Oct 1989,"This cemetery is located in the northwest quadrant of Red River County, Texas. GPS COORDINATES: Datum WGS84: 33 Deg 41.146N, 95 Deg 09.941W, El 507 ft. This cemetery is for members of the family only. It is about two miles north of Bagwell and behind the house in the pasture just at the edge of the woods. The oldest burial is for James R. Smith, Jr. who was originally interred in Blanton Creek Cemetery. After seeing that the burial site was low lying, his wife started the proceedings and a portion of land was dedicated for cemetery usage. Shortly after this was completed, a grandson was killed in a traffic accident and he was also interred in the family cemetery. This cemetery was surveyed by Lawrence and Sue Dale on 8 Feb 1999. We returned to the site on 11 Jan 2004 to take the GPS coordinates. While there Lottie Smith expressed a desire to have the land for the cemetery 'set aside' and we explained the procedure to her."
