REDMOND CEMETERY


Transcribed by Barbara Jarvis
© 2002

From Gainesville, two miles south on FM 372.   Redmond is a small, fenced cemetery ( visible) located on the west side of the road. (This is private property)   The cemetery desperately needs someone to adopt it before it disappears.   There are many graves which are sunken and unmarked.   Last surveyed on January 7, 2003.
