Ebenezer Cemetery
Arp, Smith County, Texas

Ebenezer Cemetery is located just outside the small East Texas town of Arp, and is near Troup and Omen.  Many family members of the Overton, Childress, Barron and associated names have "permanent homes" here.   I can vividly recall the lowering of the caskets of my Childress grandparents, William Thomas and wife Mary Frances ("Fannie") into their respective graves.  I have included a miscellany of photos of the tombstones in this small, but restive, cemetery.  I could well find myself there someday in the future, but hopefully not too soon!
