Hagerman Cemetery

 

 

 

 

 

This is one of those “finds” we were fortunate enough to stumble upon. While out exploring Grayson County in search of a very well concealed “Confederate” cemetery, we took a wrong turn and found ourselves cruising through Hagerman, a very rural little municipality.  I feel it safe to say that if we’d been looking for it, we would not have found it…  In fact, if there is actually any “city center”, I have no idea where to even start looking.

Let’s just say we got lucky and found yet another historic Texas cemetery in the process of losing our way.  (insert 4 bars of “Another One Bites the Dust” here…)

    Very interested in your work and love for old cemeteries. I’m trying to find information on the Smith Cemetery in Frisco. Its north of Panther Creek and West of the tollway. Are you familiar with it? The other one I am trying to find information on is located in Plano on the Ridgeview Golf Course on either the 3rd or 4th hole. Its in a small stand of trees, very well hidden. It has a small handful of markers, but lots of iris! I do not know the name of it and have not been able to find anything thus far on the internet. Are you familiar with this one as well. Would love to know more of your work. Although I have had this interest since I was a child, I have only recently decided to learn more. Would appreciate any suggestions you might have. Thank you. — Sue Kempton

    Love your work. I found a correction you might want to make to your photos of the Routh Family Cemetery:
    Routh Family Cemetery. Big mistake.

    One of your photos refers to Tombstone of Sharon Rinnett Theda and her beloved Fluffie (1918-1937), Actually Sharon, Rinnett and Theda were the dogs of Clara Routh. If you will notice the inscription below, it says “Faithful unto Death” or something like that. Fluffie was her favorite cat. There are also 2 or 3 of her horses buried there, George and ???. There is a marker. They are actually buried just outside the little fence.
