Search Wilson Family Cemetery:

Edward H. Wilson and his wife, Nancy Canon Wilson, moved their family from Polk County to Chambers County where they settled in the Double Bayou Community (formerly known as Eagle), about 10 miles south of Anahuac.
Ed Wilson purchased two tracts of land on the north fork of the Double Bayou that became the Wilson Homestead. Ed Wilson first purchased 53 5/8 acres from R. S. Sterling and his wife, Maud A. Sterling, on Nov. 16, 1903. This tract of land was part of the old Anson Taylor Survey. Ed Wilson purchased another 69 acres from Hilma Charlotta Hultgreu on August 19, 1904. This tract of land was from the N. D. Labadis Survey.
The Wilson Family Cemetery is located on a high point on the bank of Double Bayou. A small gulley cuts the cemetery off from the rest of the property so the cemetery gives the appearance of being on an island. The cemetery can only be reached by boat.
None of the graves have markers, but when I visited the cemetery in 1984, the indentations of the graves could clearly be seen.
The Wilson Homestead is located on Jobe Wilson Road in Chambers County.
