UNION HILL CEMETERY

Transcribed by Barbara Jarvis
© 2003

Located .6 mile on CR 136 from FM 2896.    Union Hill is near the former community of Custer City which was named by Jim Jones and flourished around 1876 when a post office was established.   Some 300 people lived in the area.    The town had a sawmill, school, church, store, a blacksmith shop, in addition to a cotton gin and flour mill, all of which are just a memory now.    Union Hill is fairly old, with burials dating from 1871 (or earlier) and appears to have been abandoned in the 1920s with one recent burial   Currently cared for by Charles Huneycutt.
