Tyson Cemetery

Red River County

Tyson Cemetery, 1877,"This cemetery is located in the southwest quadrant of Red River County, Texas. GPS COORDINATES: Datum WGS84: 33 Deg 24.535N, 95 Deg 17.719W. This cemetery is on pine plantation land belonging to Alexander Frick. As this is private land, please gain prior permission before attempting to find these two burials. From McCrury Cemetery take FM 196 west for 1.9 miles to a cattleguard on the south. Take this private lane south for 2/10 miles and turn right for another 4/10 miles southwest. The markers are about 50 feet off the road on the left in heavy brush and briars and are leaning against the base of a large cedar tree. The first burial is that of Elizabeth Tyson who died in 1877. This cemetery was surveyed by Lawrence and Sue Dale on 17 Dec 1999. There was a revisit on 20 Jan 2003 to take the GPS Coordinates. It surprised me to be able to find it again. We also did a re walk of the cemetery on 23 Jan 2004 looking for more markers."
