MISCELLANEOUS GRAVES AND DEATHS IN SOUTHERN COLEMAN COUNTY, TEXAS
This section is made up of gravesites
or deaths to which we have had some reference, but have found no actual
gravesites. Death certificates sometimes indicate burials as having
been 'at home, on the farm, on the ranch, private cemetery,' etc.
Often these were infants. Sometimes the burial was not made where
the death certificate indicated. Our main goal was to record known
stones, not research deaths. We have tried to make note of all known
graves, even though no stones were found.
HOME CREEK GRAVES
Some of the earliest settlements
were made in the south part of Coleman County and the time is not long
past when many old timers could remember many graves south of Home Creek,
but when fields were put in, the rock markers were moved away.
TAYLOR RANCH GRAVES
On the Taylor Ranch west of Trickham,
there are supposed to be several unmarked graves in a pasture.
RUSHING - McMILLAN GRAVES
There are said to be at least two
graves on the northeast side of the playground of the old school building
at Whon... a Christopher Columbus Rushing and a Mc Millan girl. Other
long time residents of the Whon area say there are no graves there, so
possibly there are graves at another old school site.
LEMMON FAMILY GRAVES
There are said to be four graves
on the Colorado River in what is known as Dempsy Bend. Limestone
rocks mark the final resting place of the Lemmon family.
There is a grave in the field of the old H. B. Turney farm southeast of Whon. This is the grave of a Mr. Thomas, thought to be kin to Boss Blackwell, killed by the Indians.
WATSON PLACE GRAVES
There are graves on the old Watson
place several miles southeast of Shields. The stone markers were moved
to make way for plowed fields.
DALTON FARM GRAVES
On the T. J. Dalton farm southeast
of Fisk, there are five graves thought to be the graves of Mexicans or
sheepherders. They have been there for many years and were once covered
with shells and other decorations, placed there by Mexicans. They
have no markers now, but once had wooden crosses.
COLEMAN JUNCTION GRAVES
Several unmarked graves are said to be in the area of the Coleman (railroad) Junction between Coleman and Santa Anna.
