59A-K  COX FAMILY CEMETERY Southwest corner of Hickory Tree and Lake June, Balch Springs, 75180. (Note: There is a cemetery at this same location that is listed as CORY FAMILY CEMETERY, also)

In the August 29, 1985, issue of The Balch Springs News, the following was published in an article written by Marie Hughes:

"The COX Family Cemetery was on the corner of Lake June and Hickory Tree Roads on the southwest side. When Merle Redd worked for Dallas County in 1918 he was cleaning up the cemetery before the county widened the roads. When the fence was reset it was erected across the graves. Later the roads were wided [sic] about the time of World War II and all of the graves are under the road now."

In 1985 Marie Hughes and Merle Redd were both alive and living in Balch Springs. It is logical to assume that she talked to Merle directly to gain her information. Old census reports confirm Merle Redd lived near the area described. One of his sons, still living, told me his father had to quit school as a teenager and go to work to contribute to the family income, so it is believable that he did road work in 1918. Both Marie and Merle are deceased.

HISTORIC TEXAS CEMETERY

Cedar Hill, Texas

CRAWFORD'S TORNADO GRAVEYARD

CEDAR MOUNTAIN CHURCH

The Cedar Mountain Methodist Church, commissioned April 25, 1854, was the first church of Cedar Hill. The adjoining graveyard was established when a tornado descended April 29, 1856, destroying the church, town and many homes.

August 13, 1856, Robert Crawford, Cedar Hill's first preacher and school teacher, gave 4 acres of his land where the tornado victims were buried, to the Methodist Episcopal Church South, thus establishing the first cemetery in far southwest Dallas County. The 2-acre church site, sold by Milton Merrifield to the church in 1854, lies adjacent and south of this cemetery.

Surrounded by hog wire fencing and cedar posts, nine tornado victims were laid to rest in a small plot with only piled rocks and Red Cedar trees to mark their graves. Those killed by the tornado were Mr. Berry, his wife and child, John C. Hart, his wife and child, Mr. Dickson, Jacob Allen's wife, Martha, and an unnamed "Negro woman."

  The church and cemetery land was first owned by early settlers, Rev. Robert Crawford and Milton Merrifield, then the Methodist Episcopal Church South, later by James B. Bryan and his son, Connie Bryan, and lately, by Dr. Franklin L. Crawford.

Researched by Wanda Stanton Pitt 2000-2005. Designated a Historic Texas Cemetery by the Texas Historical Commission 2006.

     Submitted by Paula J. Dodd (GGGGrand-daughter of George Floyd, GGGrand-duaghter of Charles Floyd, GGrand-daughter of Oscar Matlock Floyd, Grand-daughter of *Arthur Tom Floyd):
     Floyd-Taylor Cemetery (an area 142 ft x 148 ft, as surveyed) First known/recorded burial, 1862; but George Floyd had a son, Henry O. Floyd, who died shortly after the family arrived in Texas from Illinois in 1848. He died between 1848-1850. Henry was between 19-20 yrs. old, and was not listed on the 1850 Census. The family feels confident that Henry is buried in the Floyd-Taylor Cemetery. The last burial recorded was around 1945.
     Old family stories, say that the cemetery was set up on a burial ground pre-dating Texas Statehood. The cemetery lies in the original abstract 463 of the George Floyd land grant from Peters Colony, per Survey 89-C on May 11,1853. The survey lines were gerrymandered in 1905. Key to locating the survey lines is the location of the spring in Floyd Branch - 20 feet west of the Highway 342 bridge over the branch.
     The Cemetery is in the Smith-Elkins Survey, adjacent to the George Floyd Survey line in southeast Dallas. The cemetery is at the back of property (according to tax records - which is owned by E
NSEARCH) This location is 1400 feet east of Lancaster Road. (State Highway 342), along the fence line to a grove of large trees, in a field and very remote; and about 1200 feet south of Cedardale Road. Map showing cemetery location, here.

Article "Grave Concern" from Dallas Morning News, 2 Jun 1997, by Bryan Wooley, Staff Writer.

     Farmers Branch----They were just passing through. They had two little girls. The little girls died. They buried them in a pasture and placed two ordinary field rocks at the heads of their graves. Then they moved on. "The cemetery starts from there," says Fred Marsh, Jr. "I have no idea who those people were or where they went or when it was. It was way on back.." Harrison C. MARSH was buried near the little girls in 1882, and T. C. MARSH in 1889. Their tombstones are among the oldest and tallest in the patch of pasture that became their family cemetery.
     An ancient chain-link fence surrounds the grave of McALLISTERS,
VERBICKS, EDDISTONS, KENNEDYS, and GILLUMS, as well as the MARSHES. Its iron posts lean, its wires sag. The graves of Harrison C. and T. C. MARSH are surrounded by another fence of cast iron spikes, once elegant, separating them from the graves of their kin. The spikes are rusty now. Many years ago, the gate of the enclosure fell off and somebody leaned it against a hackberry tree. The tree grew around the gate and imprisoned it. Most of the smaller tombstones are cracked and broken. Mr. MARSH has tried to pick them up and set them back, but some are smashed into too many pieces to be put together again.
     The stone of Elizabeth EDDISTON, an infant who died in 1882, lies in the grass, broken into three pieces. A jagged fragment of white marble, the words "not forgotten" still legible on its surface, props up the broken granite tombstone of Labolt KEIVER, who died in 1901, age 76. Mr. KEIVER, it says, is "At Rest". A plastic pot of artificial flowers and a half deflated balloon with the message "I Love You" in gay colors decorates the fresh earth of the new grave.
     Two brown field stones, hard to notice in the shade of the hackberry trees, lie undisturbed. Anonymous forever.
     "Who will take care of it after Fred is unable to?" Mrs. Marsh asks,
"will anybody care?"

The population of Dallas was less than 1,000 when the Masons & Odd Fellows (I. O. O. F.) fraternal groups jointly established Pioneer Park Cemetery in 1857.
The cemetery is composed of the remnants of four early graveyards. The earliest marked grave in the Masonic section is that of Elizabeth McPHERSON (d. 1853). The oldest known interment in the I. O. O. F. section is that of R. P. ROGERS (d. 1852). Some of the land nearby was once used by the Hebrew Benevolent Association. In 1956 these graves were moved to the Emanuel Cemetery. The fourth section (Old City Cemetery) was formally deeded to the city of Dallas in 1871. The oldest marked grave, John Henry LONG (d. 1870).  The last burials in what is now called Pioneer Cemetery took place in the latter part of the 1920's.
In 1891, vandals destroyed 35 headstones.
In 1907, the Santa Fe railroad excavated the western edge of the cemetery. It is said that the workers hauled away dirt by the wagon load that was strewn with bones.
The final interment was recorded in 1921.
Graves in the Jewish section were moved in 1956 when Dallas Memorial Auditorium was built to the east of the cemetery.
In 1961, the 60 foot tall marble & granite Confederate War Memorial that was built in 1896 & placed in Old City Park was moved to Pioneer Park Cemetery. This obelisk & surrounding statues is believed to be Dallas' oldest sculpture.
Dallas Convention Center opened in 1973 & portions of that complex now cover part of the original city cemetery.
In 1999, the Convention Center driveway was built & the remains of 15 individuals were re-interred in another part of the cemetery.

UNNAMED CEMETERIES

240 Unk 17 69U Cem on North side of Haymarket Road where it turns NE, SE of Palomino, Oak Grove Baptist Church, 2205 Haymarket, Dallas 75253. SE Dallas County.

No evidence of a cemetery was found at this location by Greg Staples, Feb 2005.

This unknown cemetery, indicated by TXDOT map on the north side of Haymarket Road at this Mapsco location (69U), could possibly be in error. TXDOT indicates another Unk Cem #241, Mapsco (69Y) on the South side of Haymarket Road, across the street from the church facility. Could this have actually been a white cemetery, started in the early 1900's by the Baptist Church and lost due to neglect?
