ORLENA CEMETERY


Transcribed by Barbara Jarvis
© 2003

This cemetery is located in the northeastern part of Cooke County, southwest of CR 103, near the Red River on the property of L. E. Jones.   The old Ann Brown home is nearby.   Our thanks to Burl Sanderson for access to this site and some very interesting background information.  This survey was done in March 2003.  I would like to go back and take better pictures but one is working in rattlesnake country so this is it folks!  My daughter came along and helped survey these old stones, many darkened with age.  The cemetery backs right up to the river bottoms.
