|~ANTRIM CEMETERY~ Located North of Grapeland, Houston County, Texas, USA|
Additional history, according to Ethel Gray Wilson [1912-2004, daughter of Richard Malachi and Olivia Elizabeth Gray mentioned in an earlier paragraph, and my first cousin, once removed, Elkhart, Texas follows: "In the 1860s, John McElroy bought the 488 acres in the Collison League, where the Antrim Cemetery is located. John McElroy gave five acres for a church, school, and cemetery. The first person to get a resting place in the new cemetery was John McElroy’s negro slave. The next ones buried were Billy Williams and wife. I have no history on who passed away first. John McElroy and wife, Jane, are resting here and his sister and a brother, nephews and nieces.
