Cemetery is north on 859 out of Edgewood, Texas, turn right at SH 19, turn right at VZ CR 3613, 1/2 mile on the right, 100 feet from road.
The cemetery was 8 feet under blackberry briars. There may be 2 more buried there but only 6 gravestones were found, but I have transcribed all I could find. I did the survey myself in March of 2000.
The land across the street was owned by the Venables. My third greatgrandmother is buried there with two of her daughters and 3 of her great grandchildren from another daughter.
Notice the two spellings of Toumbes/Toumbs. The gravestones have the "e" on them. There seem to be many variations of the actual name: Toumbes-Venable, Toombs-Venable, Toombs-Venible, Toumbes-Venible.
