Trousdale Grave

Mullins Prairie

According to the Joe Cole Cemetery Survey of 1958:

We will call this cemetery Trousdale as this was the only marker that I could find that had a name and date. I was told how to locate this cemetery by Mr. Garlin Polasek and Willie Jackson, a colored man. The graves are on a very high bluff on the west bank of the Colorado River on the Brown estate 1 1/2 miles north of Mullins Prairie. The graves are enclosed by a rock wall 2 feet high at present. No doubt but the wall was several feet higher at one time. There must be at least 10 or 12 graves. The only one that is left with a name and date is (see below). Here I found the first wild pepper I have seen in several years. It grows waist high on this grave. I could learn nothing about the Trousdale family in this neighborhood.

Only marked grave:

Trousdale John, 8 Aug 1808 - 21 Apr 1870, born in Murry County, Tennessee
