SUMPTER CEMETERY
Historic Texas Cemetery

 

To get to the Sumpter Cemetery from Groveton, TX take US 287 East 4.6 miles.  Cemetery entrance is on the left.  Follow the road to the cemetery.  The main cemetery has Afro-American buried, as well as a section for blacks following this listing.

 

Sumpter was the first Seat of Justice for Trinity County (1850-1872).  The cemetery lies at the northwest corner, outside, but adjoining the town site.  According to information from Mrs. Armita Roach of Apple Springs, Texas, “Jonathan Roach was a holder of a Class 1 head right land grant.  He gave the land for the Sumpter Cemetery and his family members were buried there as early as 25 July 1840 (Baby Daughter Sarah).”  

 

A Texas Legislative Act dated 9 February 1850 created Trinity County from Houston County and directed that the county seat would be named Sumpter.  Soloman Adams was reputedly the first permanent settler in the Sumpter area.  His house, the largest in the county, became the temporary courthouse until a suitable one could be built.  Sumpter was accepted by the Texas State Legislature as the first County Seat 8 February 1854, and Soloman Adams helped survey and stake out the town in 1855.  Sumpter was incorporated in 1862, burned 2 November 1872, and lost its status as the County Seat 1873.

 

This ghost town with a pinkish granite marker (1936) on the town site deep into what has been ranch land and now in 1992 is a pine forest, declined into nothingness when the railroad by-passed it.

 

According to Mr. Cecil Willis of Woodlake, Texas, a portion of Sumpter Cemetery was allocated for the burial of Blacks when the Josserand (Black) Cemetery filled up.  Later, when additional land was purchased for the Josserand Cemetery (Black) its use was resumed.  The majority of the more than 125 unidentified graves in Sumpter Cemetery lie in the Black section. 

 

One of the unidentified graves is that of Roach May, a very small, tiny-waist great-grandmother of Velma Thornton Cocreham of Trinity, Texas.  Velma is the daughter of Frank and Annie Gates Thornton, and is the granddaughter of Elizabeth May Gates. Roach May and her brothers came up the Trinity River by boat.  She recounted that the boat was so crowded that the people had to sit very close together in the dining room.  Mrs. May and her daughter Elizabeth May Gates, were seamstresses and made ball gowns in Sumpter.

 

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.

 

Sumpter Cemetery was transcribed by Letty Harrington on September 2, 2000, as part of the Tombstone Project and may be viewed though our main Cemetery page link associated with this cemetery.  Cemetery was updated in April 2004 by Emma L. Young
