From the courthouse in Crowell, take Highway 70 east for 2.3 miles then go north on County Road 219 for 1.2 miles. The cemetery is 500 feet east of the road, just north of Mr. Carroll's house.

The Banister Cemetery is located on private land now owned by Milburn Carroll Jr. John Banister came to Foard County in 1888 and gave five acres of land for the cemetery.

In 1998, Helen Whitfield, Jo Hitt, and Faye Statser made a written and photo record of the graves. The only history and records found of this cemetery were in this record, obituaries from the Foard County news, and the book 'They Loved the Land.'

This account was compiled by me using the above resources, completed on Nov 30, 2011.

    What makes us Different?

    Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

    Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
