Location:

Enclosed in a cyclone fence, gate is locked.  Located on a hill in Liberty Hill Park, near the lake, Navarro Mills Lake, near Dawson, Navarro County, Texas.

Survey:

Attached is a copy of my Mother's records for the Garner family cemetery, near Dawson.  She surveyed this cemetery while researching the Garner genealogy.  While these Garner's were subsequently found not to be related to us, I thought this might be of interest to others.
 
I don't know if there are others buried in the cemetery or not.  It is a sad commentary of the times and hardships families suffered in those days.   .... Ron Nelson July 2003  (subsequent updates applied as additional information found)

Notes

  • This cemetery was also surveyed by Vennie Tramel Nelson about 1975, maybe earlier.
