Spencer Cemetery

Spencer Cemetery, 1 Jan 1880,"This cemetery is located in the northwest quadrant of Red River County, Texas. GPS COORDINATES: Datum WGS84: 33 Deg 48.446N, 95 Deg 10.894W. This is one of many small family cemeteries in RRCo TX. It is not on a road and can be reached only by a good pasture walk. From the Manchester community go south on the Bagwell road aproximately 2 miles to the first road turning to the right. Take this a short 1/2 mile to the first intersecting fencerow on the south or left. You must now walk down this fencerow a short 1/4 mile. The cemetery is on the right just as you approach an intersecting cross fence. In an effort to get more accurate locations for these burial grounds, we invested in a GPS device and on 10 Jan 2003 again revisited the site to get the coordinates. There has been much work there in the last few years and as of this visit we were able to count 31 gravesites within the enclosure. Most are now marked with a cross made of what appears to be stainless steel pipe.""
