|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
From Clarksville take FM 1159 for about 3 miles to the intersection with FM 1700. Turn east or right onto FM 1700 and go 2.9 miles to CR 3205. Turn right and Shiloh Church and the Madras Cemetery is ahead. The Cumberland Presbyterian Church was first organized at Shiloh then moved to Madras about 1892. A deed dated 28 Mar 1892 and filed for record on 28 May 1892 in Book CH Vol 23 Page 360 conveyed 'a tract of the Finley Moore survey' from P. H. Igo et ux to Shiloh Cemetery-Madras. The oldest marked grave is that of Charles R. Dinwiddie who died 3 Jul 1862. This cemetery was surveyed by Lawrence and Sue Dale on 7 Feb 1999. We were on the site on 15 Jan 2004 and took the GPS Coordinates. We also did a re-walk of the cemetery adding new burials and noting marker changes. As of 31 Dec 2004 this cemetery had 449 documented burials. All information for this cemetery location/notes is from the books ÂBurial, Cemetery and Death Records for Red River County, Texas' by Lawrence and Sue Dale, Copyright Â© 2005.
