Search Seminole Indian Scout Cemetery:

Approximately 100 or more Negro Seminole Scouts who played a major role in protecting the Texas Frontier from hostile Indians are buried here, with the descendants and families of the scouts. The Negro Seminole Indian Scout cemetery was established in September, 1872, on the Fort Clark Reservation. About 1940, headstones that now mark the graves of over 100 scouts buried here were obtained from the War Department through the efforts of members of the Seminole Negro Indian Scout Cemetery Association.
