RISING SUN CEMETERY

INDEXED & UPDATED BY BILL SIMPSON 1996 

TO SHACKELFORD CO. TXGenWeb HOME PAGE


Rising Sun Cemetery is a small rural cemetery located in what was once known as Rising Sun Community on private land a few miles east of Nugent on the Jones/Shackelford County border.  Rising Sun apparently was originally settled around 1884.  Because of the community's location so close to the county border, it was first believed to be in Shackelford County, but was later confirmed to be in Jones County.  The cemetery is located near the border, so inclusion on the Shackelford Co. TXGenWeb Site was thought appropriate. Shortly after the turn of the last century, the community declined and its school was consolidated with Nugent.  The cemetery was probably begun in the 1880's, however, the oldest gravemarker still legible in the cemetery is that of Lucile Arnold, infant daughter of F. M. and C. E. Arnold, who died on December 11, 1890 just before her first birthday.  If anyone has more information about the Rising Sun Community, please contact Shackelford County TXGenWeb Site Coordinator, Duston Brooks.  This cemetery was indexed by Bill Simpson and I want to thank him for allowing me to post his index on the Shackelford County TXGenWeb Site.  Please use the search or find function of your browser to search for particular surnames.
