Cemetery notes and/or description:
This cemetery is located in the northeast quadrant of Red River County, Texas. GPS COORDINATES: Datum WGS84: 33 Deg 34.789N, 94 Deg 48.980W, El 465 ft., It is located on the Holder farm, on the James Burkham survey, north of Hwy 82, between Avery and Annona, northeast of intersection of Hwy 82 and F.M. 1699. Present owner of the land is William Lynn Holder. We met with the owner and were escorted back 6/10 miles to the cemetery site. There we were pleased to see a nice chain-link fenced area, well cared for by the owner. He explained that the cemetery is beside the road where the old stagecoach came through and that there was a stop at Lick Springs which is just down the slope from the cemetery. He also pointed out that the fencerow beside the cemetery was the old road the stage followed. The owner expressed a desire to dedicate the land to the cemetery in perpetuity. The oldest marked burial is that of Mattie Knight who died on 6 Jul 1885. The survey was completed by Lawrence and Sue Dale on 26 Nov 1999. We were on site again on 26 Apr 2004 and took the GPS coordinates. As of 31 Dec 2013 this cemetery has 24 documented burials.
