Notes:

WCHC’s Vol I, pg 246 per Arthur Wells & Myreta Matthews 1974…”called Cedar Brake [sic] Cemetery by local people. In the Cedar Brakes [sic] on the W side of South San Gabriel River a mile or more E of the new Miller Cemetery on the Bagdad Road between Liberty Hill & Leander.”

From Bagdad Rd look for the junction with Live Oak Rd just N of the Miller Cemetery. Continue on Live Oak Rd until it becomes a dirt road & ends at locked gate. The cemetery is almost due N about a hundred yards in the woods surrounded by a wire fence & is of about one to two acres in size. A lot of graves have unmarked field stones & cemetery markers that can’t be read.  Appears to be abandoned.  [2020 Update:  landowner planning to maintain cemetery.]

Called “Cedar Brake [sic] Cemetery” by local people. Others refer to it as Miller One or the Old Miller Cemetery. It predates the Miller Cemetery on Bagdad Road.
