of Red River County, Texas. GPS COORDINATES: Datum WGS84: 33
Deg 37.007N, 95 Dec 08.272W. This cemetery is located on the
Welch Ranch about 3.5 miles west of Clarksville near the Batesville
Community. From Batesville take CR 1245 southwest for 3/10 mile
to a gate into a private pasture on the right. The cemetery is

There is only one marked burial but indications of others. This
is private property so you must obtain permission prior to entering.
This cemetery was surveyed by Lawrence and Sue Dale on 11 November
1999. We visited the site again on 11 Dec 2003 and took the GPS
readings. We were pleasantly surprised to see that the land owner
had erected a welded pipe cattle proof fence around the site
and thoroughly cleaned it up."
