First grave in Long Cove Cemetery, ca 1880. Some said a Mr. Ament was buried here; however the Anthony Gholson Ament who lived in the Long Cove Community in 1880 with his wife and family of six children is buried in LaRue Cemetery, Henderson County, Texas.

Miss Margaret Elizabeth 'Bessie' Shuler (1895-1985) said that this first grave contains the bodies of two children of migrant cotton pickers who died of a fever while the family picked cotton on the Avery farm. [Information from Ruth Godwin Gadbury's "One Hundred Years in Long Cove."]

Anthony Gholson Ament and wife Ellen Idell Pennington Ament and their six children, all born in Illinois, lived next to L. W. Conradt in the 1880 Census of Long Cove. The family were listed as farmers from Tennessee. Later the family left the community and moved to Coryell County, Texas, where their descendants still live. Perhaps two of their many children are buried here. Perhaps not... Many Gholsons are buried in Coryell County.
