Beth-Haven Cemetery

Established in 1887

 
Historically Beth-Haven Cemetery has been maintained by concerned and faithful volunteers who take time out from their busy schedules to keep the grounds and make the needed repairs that we might have a place to be proud of and to honor our loved ones who have gone on to be with our Lord and Savior.  But one couple stands out above all the rest - Bernice (Dick) and Wilma Jones.  Their countless years of work and leadership has resulted in an endowed-perpetual care operation with elected officials who operate and oversee the cemetery. 
The land for the cemetery was donated by Dick’s grandfather, Mr. M. G. Jones.  With the help of his aging mother, Dick identified graves and erected markers where only rocks had been placed. These records would have been forever lost had it not been for this family.  So, while there is yet time, let us not fail to express our love and appreciation to Dick and Wilma who have done so much for so many.   - Marshall Reeves  (his notes)
         
Beth-Haven Cemetery is located in the southwest part of Erath County, Texas, in the Bays community, about five miles north of Round Grove.  It has also been known as Bethel Cemetery, Jones Cemetery, and Greasy Corner Cemetery.  This cemetery was named by Mollie Sechrist Jones when the cemetery association discovered that the name Bethel Cemetery was already in use in another county.
