The cemetery is located on Beaver Road about 3 miles southwest of Elgin, Bastrop, Texas. It is about 300 feet east of Farm to Market Road (FM) 1704, on the east side of the enclosed McShan Memorial Garden. A road originally ran along the east side of the cemetery but was moved to the west side of McShan Memorial Garden during road improvements. The cemetery is overgrown and only intermittently maintained.
Perryviille, also known as Young's Settlement for the post office and Hog Eye for stage stop and inn, was a nearby community that was abandoned soon after the railroad passed by 2 miles to the north and the current town of Elgin came into being. Although the Elgin historical society members agree that the original Hog Eye cemetery was plowed under, the USGS identifies the Perryville cemetery as Hog Eye Cemetery (ID 1337892, Elgin West map) and the Texas Historical Commission incorrectly references the location of the William B. Standifer historical grave marker as Hog Eye Cemetery, 3 mi. southwest of Elgin on FM 1704. (The actual location of the William B. Standifer historical marker is about 1.1 miles to the northwest in a private cemetery also styled as Hog Eye Cemetery in Find A Grave.) This cemetery is also known by Moon Cemetery (for the Moon family) and Old Baptist Church Cemetery for the church that used to be at this location.
