GRAINES CEMETERY


Transcribed by Barbara Jarvis
© 2006

This cemetery lies east of Callisburg very near the Grayson county line.  From FM 132, take FM 165 north about six tenths mile to a private dirt road on the right.   The cemetery, which borders on this dirt road is located two tenths mile on the right.  There's only one stone left standing.  The fence is down and cattle have been allowed to roam here, distroying all of this old family graveyard.  A number of the stones were actually found beneath a shallow covering of dirt and leaves and there may be others.  I also found three large rock crypts which haven't been identified.  Surveyed Jan 11, 2006.
