This cemetery is located in South of Crockett in Houston County, Texas.

Submitted by Annita Box Powell "The Box Beeson Cemetery is in a "Cow Patch", at least that is what my sister called it. Houston County Cemetery book: "located 2 miles south of Crockett on SH 19 on what was known as the Leo Knox Ranch. There is no fence around the cemetery and many of the markers are damaged. It is on private property. John Andrew Box, Nelson Box, and Thomas Griffin Box were sons of Stephen F. and Keziah Helms Box. John A. and Polly Bynum Box's son Williams Robert is also buried there. John Andrew and second wife, Lucinda Yarbrough Box were my g g grandparents."
