This cemetery is located on the Williams farm 2 1/2 miles east of Winchester off FM 153. The site is under several large oak trees and is fenced. Joe Cole Survey says there are 9 graves plainly seen and possibly several others. Kathy Carter visited this cemetery 9/14/1989 with Cynthia Mueller and Dr. Stephen Williams. There were two marked graves, an unmarked double plot outlined in rock 2 1/2 feet tall and a one foot tall stone that could be a footstone at another grave.

The text from the historical marker at the cemetery:

STEPHEN WILLIAMS
A veteran of the War of 1812, Stephen Williams left his native North Carolina and followed the path of a major migration movement to Georgia and Alabama before coming to Texas in 1832. In 1843 he received a Texas land grant in Washington County, where he established himself as a prominent landowner and ardent member of the Baptist Church. He is best remembered for his role in the early development of the Baptist faith in Texas as a founding member of the Texas Baptist Education Society. Williams' Fayette County farmstead remained in his family for over 115 years. [1992]
