Red Cemetery


Surveyed by: Gale F. and Sharon Red

Directions: From Hwy 14 in Wortham proceed east on FM 27 for 2.7 miles, then go left (north) on gravel road for 1.7 miles, then turn left (west) up grassy lane about 100 yards to cemetery gate.

NOTE: The survey was begun in the S.E. corner, then went row by row from south to north working our way toward the back of the cemetery. Mary Mathison Price's 1980 survey was used as the basis to begin this one.
