CENTER HILL CEMETERY



Transcribed by Barbara Jarvis
© 2003-2010

To reach this small cemetery from Gainesville, take E Hwy 82 to FM 371. There is a sign at Cedar Hill Rd. which is about one half mile north of the junction of FM 371 and FM 2896. Drive through the cattleguard at the brick house and continue east a short distance.

Like many other county cemeteries, Center Hill has a number of lost graves. Beginning at the gate, We walked this in a back and forth fashion, noting sunken areas or sandstone markers. For those who feel they may have a family member buried here, I have noted some distances between known burials. This cemetery is well maintained and last surveyed April 21, 2003 by Gene Tarvin and Barbara Jarvis
