Cemetery notes and/or description:
Directions: From Teague, take FM 80 south approximately 7 miles to FM 489, go west about 1.7 miles to Union Cemetery Road, and south about 1/2 mile to the cemetery.

Historical Marker: Used as a burial ground since 1860. This two-acre tract was given in 1860 by Jacob W. Tacker for use as cemetery and school site. Area was known as "Tacker School and Graveyard Community." First church on the land-- a log building-- was erected in 1866. It also served as school. A second, frame structure was built 1891, named "Union Church." At same time the cemetery was renamed "Union." The premises were cared for by local people until the "Union Cemetery Association" was formed in 1900 to maintain property and buildings. Present brick chapel was built in 1962.
