Look-Up Request: Hello, I was wondering if you could look up a James & Mary Ellen Arwine. I have a date for Mary Ellen death 8/25/1885. Could you give me any other dates or any other Arwine that you might have listed. There might be a chance of a name listed as Arwine-Sexton too. Thank you very much

REPLY:
Hi Barbara,

I probably have a lot of information in this book that you need. There is an Arwine Cemetery in Hurst, Texas.

LOCATION:
On Arwine Cemetery Road, one block south of the eight hundred block of East Pipeline Road. The fenced cemetery has been awarded a Texas Historical Marker which reads:

ARWINE CEMETERY
"PIONEER DANIEL ARWINE (1830 - 1887) MIGRATED TO TEXAS FROM INDIANA IN 1865, A DEPUTY U.S. MARSHALL, ARWINE DEEDED SIX ACRES FOR A SCHOOL, CHURCH AND CEMETERY IN 1879. THE SCHOOLHOUSE SERVED FOR WORSHIP SERVICES AND GATHERINGS. FIRST BURIAL IN THIS CEMETERY WAS ARWINE'S DAUGHTER KATY (D. 1879). THE GRAVE OF ENOCH SEXTON (D. 1890) AN UNCLE OF ARWINE HAS THE OLDEST STONE. ARWINE, HIS WIFE AND PARENTS ARE AMONG THOSE BURIED IN THE 279 KNOWN GRAVES. RELATIVES AND BOY SCOUTS HAVE MAINTAINED THE GRAVEYARD. IN 1975 THE ARWINE CEMETERY ASSOCIATION WAS ORGANIZED. (1977)"

I have 22 Sexton's in this book, all but 2 are buried in Arwine. I have 26 Arwine's all are buried in this cemetery.

If you will send me your name and address I will copy the 8 pages of this book and send to you. Please e-mail me in private. LinWhite@aol.com

The grave of Mamie Dobkins, wife of Berry Dobkins, the grave of an infant of William M. Dobkins and three other graves without inscriptions are known to be in this cemetery.

This cemetery has been granted a Texas Historical Marker:

ALEXANDER DOBKINS FAMILY CEMETERY
"Pioneer area settlers Alexander Dobkins (1815-1869) and his wife Mary (1818-1880) migrated to Texas from Tennessee in 1852. Ordained as a minister in the nearby Bear Creek Baptist Church, Alexander also served as postmaster for the local community of Estill's Station during the Civil War. His grave is the earliest marked at this site. Originally part of his 200-acre farm. Also buried here is his son William C. Dobkins (1841-1928), who served the area as a Physician, Businessman, and Civic Leader. Other graves include those of family members and Friends. (1981)

BEAR CREEK BAPTIST CHURCH: Was organized 15 may 1853 by John M. Myers, John Fyke and Alexander Dobkins. Members: B. F. Crowley, Isham Crowley, Richard Crowley, Elizabeth Crowley, Mary Ann Dobkins, Edna Crowley, Almeda Crowley,and Mary Crowley. The Crowley's were dismissed from Lonesome Dove Church to avoid organization. (The last bit of information regarding Bear Creek Baptist Church is from Grapevine Area History Book.)

If you have information on others buried in this cemetery let me know and I will add to this book.
