Sansom Cemetery (Wedgeman Cemetery)
Limestone County, Texas

Lat: 31° 20' 36"N, Lon: 96° 21' 35"W

Contributed by Bruce Jordan, Oct 19, 2003 [bjordan@galde.net]. Total records = 194.

From Groesbeck, go south on FM 937 to the Limestone/Robertson County line. Continue another .7 miles. Turn left on an unmarked road and go .9 mile to RCR 480. Continue on RCR 480 1.4 miles. RCR 480 becomes LCR 735 as you cross the county line again. The cemetery is located at the end of LCR 735. (Do not take LCR 735A.)

The Sansom Cemetery has been in use since the days of Reconstruction in Texas. At the end of the Civil War, a group of settlers moved to this area from Mississippi. This cemetery is still accepting burials.

The community was called Mount Joy. Dr. J. L. Sansom donated two acres of his land for the cemetery in 1870. H. Wedgeman donated land for a road and cemetery parking in 1929. The oldest markers are dated 1873. At least 11 Confererate soldiers are buried here.

This is a complete recording of this all existing headstones in this cemetery as of Jul, 2003. There are perhaps other unmarked graves.
