MCBRIDE SCRUB CREEK LOST CEMETERY

 

This cemetery is probably on private property. The Mc Bride Scrub Creek Lost Cemetery is at Nogales Prairie, TX, on the William Cox Survey, in an uncultivated pasture near an old cistern, about 100 yards from Scrub Creek. This cemetery has not been surveyed. It is reported there are no tombstones showing.

Location and history of the cemetry were given on January 22, 1992 by Mr. Earl Lester. Mr. William Due purchased the land from the I & GN Railroad. Two acres were allocated for a cemetery. Later, Mr. I. Friedman purchased the property. In 1909, Mr. Joe Terry bought the land and in 1910 Mr. Earl Lester was the purchaser. Mr. Lester knew about the cemetery, and could tell by the mounds that there were seven graves. There was no identification other than seeing a member of the McBride family tend to the graves occasionally. All indications of graves have been obliterated. This family lot has always been known to Mr. Lester as the McBride Cemetery.

For the compiled  information, both Trinity County Cemeteries 1980 and the second edition Trinity County Texas Cemeteries 1992 both published by Trinity County Historical Commission (TCHC) were consulted.   

The cemetery information was compiled on 13 April, 2002 by TCHC Cemetery Committee Members

The information has been submitted and is offered free to all who visit. The ownership/copyright stays with the submitter Trinity County Historical Commission.
