NOTE: Per John Christeson on Find-A-Grave, his first paragraph is referring to a separate Anderson “Family” Cemetery instead of this Anderson Rock House “community” cemetery. His remaining remarks…”“on FM 3405 turn S on CR 256 & drive 0.9 miles to the cemetery entrance, behind a posted & locked gate on your left. This gate is at the former community of Rock House, which has disappeared. The cemetery is now located on private property. Cemetery is located about 8 minutes away along the old road which ends at a field. Continue E along the S edge of field. As you near the end of the field look in the woods to your right for an iron fenced enclosure and this is where the cemetery is located in heavy groundcover which may hide some of the gravestones. There are three iron fenced enclosures with two gravestones each & other gravestones scattered about. As of March 2016 the property on which the cemetery is located was purchased by Brendon Welch who operates the property as a Nature Preserve. He has erected a fence around the cemetery which he now maintains. To gain access to the cemetery contact Brendon at 682.215.0169.””
