Search Wilder Cemetery:

This cemetery was located on the south side of FM road 3149 about 1 mile east of Tours in the NW 1/4 of Section 50. At the intersection of Rice Creek Road and Fajkus Road. Unfortunately, the fence around the old cemetery was torn down, the tombstones removed, and the ground is now being used as farm land. Although many residents of the Tours community remember this cemetery, in 1980 only 4 tombstones could be found. These broken stones were in a clump of Mesquite trees in a corner, not far from the old graveyard.
It is said that some stones may have been buried on the right of way of the FM road.
Mrs. Pat (Mrs. Paul) Fehler, the great great grandaughter of Clarriet Wilder rescued Clarriet's stone and that of her great uncle, G.D. Wilder. Mrs. Fehler provided the above information.
It is unclear how big this cemetery was, but it served as a Protestant Cemetery for the predominantly Catholic community of Tours.

Please note: The actual grave sites are undetermined. This is private property, please respect that.
