The Sanderson Cemetery was moved to, and is now a part of, Cedar Grove Cemetery. According to Arthur Soule, at TexasExcapes.com write, "The Sanderson Cemetery contains the headstone erected by the Terrell County Historical Society to mark the resting-place of Ben Kilpatrick, AKA the Tall Texan and partner Ole Hobek, who attempted to rob the train at Baxter's Curve, just east of Sanderson in 1912. The actual bodies may have been washed away in a flash flood, some years ago."
