Search Old Robbinsville Cemetery:

This cemetery is located in the northwest quadrant of Red River County, Texas. This is another of the recently destroyed burial grounds in RRCo TX. We have been chasing this for some time and have found that all the markers have been removed as of February 1999. Burial information is From an EARLIER READING OF THIS CEMETERY in the Clarksville Library compiled by Grady Moore. This information copied by Lawrence and Sue Dale on 19 Aug 1999. During the Civil War and later old Robbinsville, located some hundred feet north of present Hwy 82 and west of where the school bus road goes north to Bagwell. It is also located by being west some 400 yards from the roadside park on highway 82. It was a stage coach stop on the run from Jefferson before the railroad came in the 70's, had a grist mill and store during Civil War and later a post office. The cemetery is further north along (under 1/4 mile) on the west side of the road to Bagwell. A post oak tree is in the cemetery. There probably were many more marked graves. At present the stones remaining are moved to the fence along the road to Bagwell. This information was gathered in the early 1960's.

UPDATE: As of 10 Sep 2000 Lawrence and Sue were shown the last of the markers from the cemetery. Also, while there, we were shown an old deed to the property and in it there is a provision for a 50x50 foot 'set-aside' as a permanent burying ground. The owners agreed to go to Clarksville and have this recorded for posterity. Will update this more later. We were here again on 21 Jan 2003 to take the GPS Coordinates. As of 31 Dec 2004 this cemetery had 3 documented burials.

UPDATE: We were on the site again on 28 August 2010. Sadly, the markers have not been replaced and even the marker base has been removed. Cattle are roaming freely over this ground.
