Per Ruth Young Crowson, 6/2009
The instruction for getting there doesn't name roads, but from the
directions it seems to be Upper Elgin River Rd. to Monkey Rd. It calls it
the Hog Eye Cemetery and says it is .3 miles SE on a county road, that the
cemetery is 900 feet south in a field, and that it is fenced with an iron
picket fence. This describes the place where I took the photo several years ago.
There are no tombstones inside the iron picket fence except for Standifer's.
At that time it was in good shape, as was the medallion. There was also a
small Texas flag in the enclosure.
The engraved words are:
