To reach this cemetery from Temple, take SH 5 south for about a mile, then as the road curves continue for 2.5 miles east and turn right/south onto Lonestar road, and continue for 3.5 miles. Cemetery is on the west side/right side of the road.
This cemetery is situated on the private property of Tab Lewis, in a cattle field and is in pretty bad shape. One should get permission to visit the cemetery from the owner.
This abandoned cemetery has approximately 50 graves in it, majority with no markers. Rumor has it that most of these graves were burials of victims of a typhoid outbreak following a flood. It is also known as the Hooper Cemetery.
My mother and I visited this cemetery early last year and transcribed what we could find, which would be in the spring of 2005.- Lori HedgesBurris, Ester, b. Feb 7, 1904, d. Jun 26, 1905, daughter of Frank and Mamie Burris
