Campbell - Elrod Cemetery

Land for this cemetery was given to the Harmony Methodist Church in 1855 by Navarro County pioneer David Wilson Campbell. Ten acres were donated to the church trustees, with part to be set aside as a graveyard and known as Campbell Cemetery. David Campbell was buried here in 1879. The land was conveyed to J. M. and Eunice Elrod in 1908. They gave the land containing the cemetery back to the church in 1914. Although there are some unmarked graves, the earliest documented burial is that of Ensly Willis (1856 - 1859).
