Jim Wells County Texas Cemeteries
Old Ranch Cemetery
Visited November 2004 & January 2006 by Charlie Ward
Old Ranch Cemetery is located on private property, a working ranch, on FM-70, southeast of the town of Sandia. The cemetery is fenced with barbed wire. There are 7 visible headstones, all of which are broken. There were 5 illegible funeral home markers, none of which were on any particular grave. The earliest found burial was 1918, with the most recent being 1962. It appears to have been a burial place for ranch hands and their families. It is not maintained.
