ABLE / SHILOH CEMETERY

Located 2 miles east of Bulcher on FM 373 in northwest Cooke County.   Shiloh Church 1906 - 1994 no longer exists here but this old cemetery is still well kept by Roger Fleitman and ably assisted by Chuck DeAlbuquerque.  You may want to take a drive and visit this lovely location or leave a note in the box there!    Earliest known burial appears to have been in 1875, although there are many lost graves.   Where I have indicated spaces, you may assume there are lost graves.   Surveyed 9 May 2003 with Gene Tarvin
