Who was in this Pioneer cemetery?


Lost Headstones
First Goldthwaite Cemetery

(Before Mills County was formed)
This lost or destroyed cemetery was one of The first cemeteries in Goldthwaite

It was located on the Roach Fox property "backyard"
next to 1607-9 block Old Priddy Road near rail road tracks, after the death of Roach Fox, the few stones are no longer there-possibly removed with the cleanup of the debris by the new owner
If you know of any other persons buried in this backyard cemetery, please contact me

Even though the stones are gone, they are still there and should be remembered. They were the pioneers of this county
