PARKER RIDGE CEMETERY

In Groveton, Texas, on US 289 east, take FM Road 2912 to the end of the pavement and continue less than a mile to the cemetery located on the right.

The trail for information began with Deputy Sheriff Frank Bragg, to Mr. Steve Dixon and Mrs. Arlisha Adams.  Mr. Dixon stated that his mother, Mrs. Rachel Dixon, (age 111 at death) told the story that the Trinity County Lumber Company gave the land during the days of the Civilian Conservation Corps of which he was a member.  The cemetery was named for Reverend D. A. Parker's wife.  Mrs. Adams, Secretary of the Parker Ridge Cemetery Association, added that the Trinity County Lumber Company deed was dated 1928.  The cemetery was first used with Mrs. Parker's burial in 1931.  Reverend Parker was the pastor of the Rose Hill Church located one mile from the cemetery.  Rev. Parker is also buried in this cemetery, but neither of the Parkers have a headstone.  The trees were cut in the cemetery and sold to help pay for a chain link fence.  The rest of the money was raised by Mrs. Adams and Mrs. Ada Ryan. 

You may contact the cemetery association through Trinity County Historical Commission, P.O. Box 123, Groveton, TX 75845, if you have any corrections, questions or information to add to this listing. For the compiled list, both Trinity County Cemeteries ©1980 and the second edition Trinity County Texas Cemeteries © 1992 both published by Trinity County Historical Commission (TCHC) were consulted.
