Cemeteries Of Southeast New Mexico.

By Gene K. Tarvin

Old Antioch Baptist Church

The Antioch Cemetery is directly behind the church. The cemetery is still in use and dates from 1910

The Old church once served the ranchers and farmers of the area and the thriving town of Midway, long since fading back into history.

The Cemetery is 3 mi west of the New Mexico and Texas State line about 16 mi. N.E. of the City of Lovington in Lea Co. N.M.
From Hwy 380 turn South on Antioch road, go one mile and turn west on Fillingim Rd.
You will see the old church ahead, go around to get to the cemetery in back.
There is a Cemetery Marker Sign on the highway.
