This cemetery has been associated with a church in the area and has been used by the local Afro-American residents. It is located in the southeast quadrant of Red River County, Texas. From Clarksville and Hwy 82 east, take FM 412 south for 9.1 miles to the intersection with CR 4265. Take CR 4265 east for 8/10 miles and the cemetery is on the left. There is a deed transaction dated 25 Nov 1909 and filed for record on 7 Feb 1910 in Book CH Vol 65 Page 327 for 1 acre of the J. Deering survey from R. H. Allston to Evergreen Baptist Church. The oldest documented burial is that of John Lee who died 8 Mar 1926. We did not find the old cornerstone for the church, however. This cemetery was first surveyed by Lawrence and Sue Dale on 10 Feb 1999. Again on 3 Feb 2003 we made the trek to this cemetery to take pictures and to get the GPS Coordinates. While there we spent more time probing for markers and again recorded the information on the markers there. We did find an extra footstone that does not match any burials there. We visited the site on 31 Jan 2004 to see the fresh cleanup done by the sheriff's department and did re-check all records. Great job, fellows, on the cleanup. As of 31 Dec 2004 this cemetery had 56 documented burials, the last burial being 20 Jun 1994.
