About

From Bogata go south on Hwy 37 to intersection with FM 196. Turn right and go about 2 miles, the cemetery being on the left. A deed dated 25 May 1953 and filed for record on 20 Jun 1953 in Book CH Vol 196 Page 478 'deeded to R. M. Griffin 4 tracts of W. M. McCrury survey less 1-1/2 acres' from John Forester et al to McCrury Cemetery. The oldest marked burial is that of John W. McCrury who died in 1864. This cemetery was surveyed on a pleasant Sunday, 13 Dec 1998, by Lawrence and Sue Dale. On 20 Jan 2003 a complete re-walk was accomplished and the cemetery was subdivided into East and West sections at this time as well as taking the GPS Coordinates. We also did a re-walk of the cemetery on 23 Jan 2004 adding new burials and noting marker changes. As of 31 Dec 2004 this cemetery had 190 documented burials. All information for this cemetery location/notes is from the books ‘Burial, Cemetery and Death Records for Red River County, Texas' by Lawrence and Sue Dale, Copyright © 2005.
