Bivins Cemetery, EARLIEST MARKED BURIAL 28 Oct 1892 NOTES: This cemetery is located in the southeast quadrant of Red River County, Texas. GPS COORDINATES: Datum WGS84: 33 Deg 36.153N, 95 Deg 01.659W. This cemetery is referred to in the funeral records from Jolly Funeral Home for Mattie Kennedy Criner -- 'burial in the John W. Bivins Cemetery'. From downtown Clarksville take Hwy 82 east for 8/10 mile to the intersection with S. Fairground. Turn right or south onto S. Fairground and after 3/10 mile S. Fairground becomes CR 4105. Continue on CR 4105 for 7/10 mile and there is a barbed wire gap into a pasture on the left. Enter the pasture and continue northeasterly for 2/10 miles until you run out of pasture lane. Get out and continue to walk northeasterly up the fenceline for another 150 yards and the cemetery is ahead in a chain-link enclosure and badly grown over. The oldest marked burial with a complete date is that of John A. W. Sowell who died on 28 Oct 1892. On a pleasant afternoon, 4 May 2001, with the weather threatening rain, we finally made the trip to the cemetery. On a cool January afternoon with cloud cover we again visited the site on 30 Jan 2003 and recorded the GPS Coordinates. As of 31 Dec 2013 this cemetery had 11 documented burials.
