Cemetery notes and/or description:
An historic marker reads: "Burial place of some 400 Texas pioneers and descendants. On land granted (1835) to A. J. Webb; bought in 1850 by Judge Robert Calvert, a civic leader in Sterling, a town named for Empresario Sterling Clack Robertson. Calvert dedicated 11.1-acre cemetery and built adjacent Cumberland Presbyterian Church of his own plantation timber. In 1867, Judge Calvert died and was buried near cemetery gate. The church building was moved by oxen to new town of Calvert (2 mi. E). In 1868, his wife, Mary Keesee Calvert, and their three daughters deeded cemetery site to the Cumberland Presbyterians." The rest of the land still belongs to the descendants of Robert Calvert.
Cemetery is in very bad shape and there is no fence to keep cattle out. Several of the original board "homemade" markers that were there 10 years ago, are now gone.
Located on Calvert Farm Road, off of Hwy 979, West of Calvert.
There has been a committee started to preserve this cemetery. Anyone with family buried here, or that would like to help, please contact Jennifer at email@example.com.
