In Plano from Parker Road, turn south on Northgate Dr., west on Timberview Dr., south on Twin Falls Dr and look for access to the back alley between some of the houses.
This appears to be a family cemetery. The gate on the fence as one enters the burial area has the name Collingsworth on it. The fence does not totally surround the cemetery, but just the side facing the alley.
The headstones are all situated in an area roughly 1000 square feet, or the size of a small house. I could not tell if there are more unmarked burials. There is no indication that there have been any burials since the early 1900s. The property is overgrown with weeds, bushes & trees.
It is said that this cemetery started following an epidemic of smallpox in 1895, although no death dates reflect this date.
I walked this cemetery Dec 30, 2003, then transcribed from the photos taken, which I am willing to share. This includes all existing headstones.- Laura O'Brien
