     This cemetery was developed adjacent to the site of the Bear Creek Missionary Baptist Church, which was organized in 1853. The earliest marked grave is that of Hiram Jackson Farris (d. 1858), the infant son of G.W. and Mary Farris. Isham Crowley (1798-1878), who came to Texas as a member of , donated the burial ground and deeded it to church trustees in 1876. The congregation later moved to Dallas County and was renamed Western Heights Missionary Baptist Church. Still in use, Bear Creek Cemetery is the burial site of many eastern Tarrant County pioneers.

StoppingPoints.com Editorial on Bear Creek Cemetery:
It appears that the old Minters Chapel Road can be found via the 360 access road. The cemetery is surrounded by the Bear Creek Golf Course these days. The Minters Chapel road no longer connects through as it once did. You can see the road by clicking on the map to view the Satellite pics and then zooming in a little.
