Take Route 21 South out of Mineral Wells to Wolf Run Road in Rockport.
Follow Wolf Run for about 3 ½ miles to Slate Creek Road. Follow
Slate Creek for about 2 ¼ miles. The church and cemetery are next
to the road on the right side.
This cemetery is owned and maintained by the Slate Chapel United
Methodist Church. The cemetery is no longer active, but the church
still holds services.
The church was established in 1878, but many of the burials pre-date
the church. Many of the stones have been repaired numerous times
and are very worn and hard to read. Please verify the information
with other sources.
I walked and transcribed this cemetery on Aug 29, 2010.
