Search Rives Family Cemetery:

Rives Cemetery is at Bonham's Landing on Caddo Lake at the Texas-Louisiana State Line. It is reached by following Highway 49 to the State Line, about 21 miles east of Jefferson, TX, and turning south on the dirt road down to the lake.

Note: Rives Family Cemetery is located on the private property of Roy and Joyce Rhoads. One should always consider asking permission to visit the cemetery because of it's close proximity to the rear of their house.

This cemetery contains the oldest in the county, 1846, and not been used for many years. Although it is located just inside Caddo Parish, LA, the vast Rives family land holdings are in Marion County, TX. John G. Rives first acquired the land from the Republic of Texas and eventually reduced his holdings to 3,000 acres.

His steamboat landing on Caddo Lake was first named Rives Landing but later was named Bonham Landing for his son-in-law.
