Ebenezer Hearne Cemetery

Robertson County TX


An historic marker reads: "Located adjacent to the former mansion site of "Estate Place Plantation," owned by Ebenezer and Minerva Walker Hearne, this burial area contains graves of Ebenezer (1817 - 1860) and Minerva (1815 - ?) Hearne, their daughter Isophena Hearne Dunklin (1849 - 1874) and several children, names not recorded; a landmark of pioneer days when the Hearne families (1850's settlers) opened cotton plantations that prospered in the area. Home of Horatio Hearne, the brother of Ebenezer, stood three miles to the south. Memorial plaque donated by descendants of Ebenezer Hearne."

No tombstones remain at the site.
