Thanks to Gayla Hart & Sharon Pierce for these pictures.
This cemetery is located North of Gladewater off Texas St. on a Chevron lease. We had to hike in off the road about 50 yards, through poison oak. This is on private property and the neighbor isn?t very nice, so we wouldn?t suggest trying to locate it.
All of the information known is listed here. The graves are in a 10 x 40 plot with a cement footing all around it. Even with all the oilfied equipment around, it is still a lovely setting, lots of trees, and someone has planted Irises all around the border. This cemetery was used for burials prior to 1848, covering about 4 acres of ground. Abandoned now, few graves (no headstones) can be located, due to time, climate and vandalism. Several of the slaves of Mason Moseley are believed to be buried in or near the cemetery grounds.The first metal sign was erected in 1978 in an effort to identify it. Work was done by the four children of Minnie M Clements Phillips, who is the granddaughter of William W and Mary Johnson Stone Walters.
THERE ARE NO HEADSTONES. All the information comes from a metal sign with the names TIG welded on it.....and from Mr Eddie Phillips, who originally researched this cemetery. He worked diligently contacting descendents to find out who was actually buried here, through bible records, family plots, and memory. Mr Phillips gave permission for us to use his information also.
Anyone with information on these families, please
contact Etta and
Elaine or Eddie Phillips (Box 564, Elm Mott, Tx 76604).
