Search Echols-Eckles Cemetery:

From Highway 78, turn right at Chafin Echols Road/County Road 59. Turn left at County Road 58/Glenn Road. The cemetery will be on the left past the home of Lamar and Kay Berry.

There are two different stories regarding the difference in the spelling of the last names.

The first is that the last name was Eckles and two brothers had an argument and one changed his last name to Echols.

The second story is that the last name was Eckles and a person in the community told them they were mispelling their name and that it should be Echols, so they changed it.
