Cemetery notes and/or description:
Located in the western portion of Milam County on Farm to Market Road 437 between Davilla and the Val Verde Community on the Old Ed Wilson Place, approximately 2 miles southwest of Val Verde on west side of the road near Donahoe Creek or about 3 miles northwest from Davilla on the west side of the road.

From Davilla, travel to just short of Donahoe Creek and on the left side of the road, a gap fence will appear. Follow the dirt road to the northwest until the second gap in the fence. Pass through the fence gate and turn to the left and proceed until the dirt tank. (I am not local and have only viewed the area from satellite views, the tank does show up but I am not sure if it would be full or not). On foot go up a slight incline and after about a quarter of a mile, the cemetery can be seen among the trees and it is covered in brush and briar vines. If it has rained, the walk up the incline may be difficult.

The following information was provided by Perry Holder in the November 1982 survey of the cemetery.

"The earliest Burial recorded was Thomas L. Mumford's in 1861 and the earliest birth year seen was J.M Mumford's in 1808. The oldest occupant is Sarah L. B. Mumford at 74 years of age. In one place it was recorded that Jesse Mumford was granted the land and in another that David Mumford was granted one league of land from the Robertson's Colony on March 20, 1835."
