Please note that this is a separate entity from the church. This cemetery has always been known only as SHAWNEE CEMETERY. All deed records are in the name of the cemetery only.
This cemetery is near the property of the Shawnee Baptist Church and is used by the local Afro-American residents. This cemetery is located in the southeast quadrant of Red River County, Texas. From Boxelder take FM 44 east for 2.3 miles to the intersection with CR 4415 on the left. Take CR 4415 north for 9/10 miles and the cemetery is on the right from church property and just down the hill. On the reverse side of the marker for Eugene Lee is carved 'Donated the land for this cemetery in 1879.' A deed dated 2 Sep 1929 and filed on 29 Nov 1960 in Book CH Vol 220 Page 343 conveys 1 acre of the Abram Wagley survey from Rhoda Lee et al to Shawnee Cemetery. The oldest marked grave is that of Alberta Waller who died in 1917. This cemetery was surveyed by Lawrence and Sue Dale on 11 Jan 1999 on a cold and very windy day. We were on the site on 12 Apr 2003 and took the GPS Coordinates. We visited the site again on 18 Dec 2003 and did a re-walk of the cemetery adding new burials and noting marker changes. As of 31 Dec 2004 this cemetery had 154 documented burials. This cemetery was walked on 26 Sep 2010 by Richard and Gertrud Haskins adding new markers and new burials. As of this date there are 161 documented burials.
