RETURN        HOME

Located in Throckmorton Co.on State Hwy 283,about 3 miles north of Fort Griffin State Park ,just passed the 
Shackelford Co. line. Turn west at cemetery sign.Here you will have to get out and open a gate, as it is on 
private land with loose livestock. The landowner requests that you close the gate behind you.  Follow road 
about 1 mile. It is a family cemetery with 
connections to the Ledbetter, Shelton, and Perkins's.  There are, however, about two burials that are not 
related to these families.  A chainlink fence surrounds the cemetery and is very well maintained.
