|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Located west of Grapeland off FM 227 in the Mt. Zion Community. Turn left on a dirt road marked by the Houston County Lake sign; then take the first dirt road that turns left from this road. It is only a short distance from the last turn-off to the Cemetery.
Mrs. Milo Pennington states that her great-grandfather, Dr. Francis Lewis Meriwether once owned this land. Some of the slaves died and were buried there. After the Civil War, the land was given permanently for the Cemetery.
