Moseley Cemetery

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.

From about 1850 until 1871, a post office, which served the Point Pleasant community, operated near this site. The area was known as Gilead under the first postmaster, L. B. Camp, who earlier had established a ferry crossing the Sabine River (2 mi. W). when the name Point Pleasant was
adopted in 1852, J. K.Armstrong (d. 1860) was named postmaster. Other postmasters who served Point Pleasant were William W. Walters (d. 1885), who operated the stage stop where the post office was located, Claiborn Halbert, and Joshua W. Monk. Elisha A. Mackey was Point Pleasant's last official postmaster. During its 21 years of existence the Point Pleasant Post Office served approximately 48 families including those of Jarret Dean, James Hendrick, Mason Moseley, Augustus Moseley, A. H. Abney, A. C. Williams, Jacob M. Lacy, A. G. Rogers, and A. T. Wright. The Point Pleasant School (called Possom Trot and still operating in 1908 with Trustees R. A. Hendrix, E. W. Clements, and Mr. Phillips) and Moseley Cemetery also served these pioneers. When the railroad came through in 1873, the new towns of Gladewater and Longview drew residents away from the Point Pleasant area. Clarksville City, created by the 1931 East Texas oil boom, later developed at the site of the Point Pleasant community.
