| Richland Cemetery Unmarked graves here may date to 1872, the year the Richland Baptist Church bought the site and the Richland School was established here. The earliest marked grave dates to 1878; two earlier ones, dated 1873 and 1876, are reinterments. Many veterans, including more than a dozen of the Civil War, are buried here. The Richland Cemetery Society maintained the graveyard from 1922 to 1962, when the Richland Cemetery Association formed. Although the school and original church are gone, the site now provides an enduring link to the area's early history. Historic Texas Cemetery - 2002 |
