Take CR 2239 northwest for 1 mile until it ends at a pasture gate. Look north about 1/4 mile and see a group of large old trees among the younger pine trees along the banks of a tributary just south of Blanton Creek. The cemetery is on private property and located in this stand of trees on the creek bank. The land is owned by J. C. Dotson and is privately owned so please get permission before attempting to gain entry to the area. It is a part of the E. H. Tarrant headright survey and a part of the R. W. Holloway partition deed of 1871, 120 feet square for a cemetery. The oldest marked grave is that of Era E. Holloway who died 6 June 1884. This cemetery was copied by Lawrence and Sue Dale on 18 Aug 1999 From an EARLIER READING OF THIS CEMETERY in the Clarksville Library by C. M. Raulston, Jr. On 14 Jan 2004, we were finally able to locate the site and did a thorough search of the area. The ice storm of Dec 2000 did considerable damage and there is a tremendous amount of deadfall on the area. Some of the markers were knocked over as a result. We did dig out all markers and photographed them as well as to collect the epitaphs from the old markers. While there we also got the GPS coordinates for the cemetery. Contact for this cemetery is J. C. Dotson, PO Box 172, Bagwell TX 75412, 903-427-2650. As of 31 Dec 2004 this cemetery had 19 documented burials. All information for this cemetery location/notes is from the books ‘Burial, Cemetery and Death Records for Red River County, Texas' by Lawrence and Sue Dale, Copyright © 2005.
