HONEY CREEK CEMETERY

[Gates to this cemetery are padlocked to prevent more vandalism.  For more information, contact  Rutledge Funeral Home in Hico.]

 

Honey Creek Cemetery is located on CR 120 near the juncture with CR 122 fifteen miles northwest of Hamilton, between Carlton and Hico.

From Mrs. Brents Witty's, "Hamilton County, Texas Cemetery Records:"

  During the War Between the States, William B. [sic-Willam Herring not William B.] Reed, Co., K. Tex. H.V. ARTY C.S.A., came to Honey Creek to see his uncle, Dr. William B. Reed (July 12, 1798 - March 1, 1863).  The inscription on the tombstone of Dr. William B. Reed reads, 'First County Judge of Hamilton County.  Erected by the citizens of Hamilton County.'  However, Dr. Reed was not the Chief Justice (county judge) of Hamilton County until 1862-63

William Herring Reed, the soldier, became ill with smallpox and died.  No one would come near him to do the last rites.  Finally, two Negro women in the neighborhood were persuaded to bury him close by the location of Dr. Reed.  Some others were buried there and the place became the Honey Creek Cemetery on Dr. Reed's land."
