Isham Cemetery

The Rev. W. Marion Isham (1831-1904) and his family came to Tarrant County from Georgia about 1870. Soon after arriving in the area Isham donated a one-acre plot of land to be used for a community cemetery. The oldest remaining legible grave marker here is that of N.L. Sweet (1824-1870), although earlier burials are documented by plain sandstone markers. Approximately five acres were added to the graveyard in 1941. Still in operation as a community burial ground, the historic graveyard is maintained by the Isham Cemetery Association. Texas Sesquicentennial 1836-1986.

Isham Cemetery is located in the 7100 block of Kuban Blvd., in far east Fort Worth.  The address shown with the historical marker is 7100 John T. White Road, but this appears to be the back gate. The cemetery stretches between John T. White and Kuban and is behind the houses on the west side of Williams Road.
