WCHC’s Vol III, pg 349 (suppl p 17) in 1986….”See Vol I for 1974 listing of this cemetery which at that time was on the Thelma Wells Lackey farm, in middle of a field, about 2 miles N of FM 2243 (off present – 1986 – CR 279-280). An earlier listing, published in the April 1961 issue of “Our Heritage”, The San Antonio Genealogical & Historical Society, gives additional information on this family cemetery. Listed by Mrs. L H. Williamson, a sister-in-law of Leona Williamson of Leander; submitted by Mrs. Charles Myler of San Antonio as follows: The plot is located in the extreme western part of Williamson County, about three miles W of Leander, which is situated on Hwy 183 N from Austin…All graves except one are enclosed within a 4-foot rock wall situated about 200 yards W of the road. A narrow lane leads to a tenant house where permission may be secured to enter the cemetery. The surrounding farm land is owned by Mrs. Lou Wells, a granddaughter of Thomas Huddleston, the original owner.”

Cemetery is in a grove of trees SW of the junction of Bagdad Road (CR 279) & CR 280. The ruins of the limestone cemetery fence can be seen from Bagdad Rd. Turn W on CR 280 & then S on the farm lane across from the farmhouse. Continue on the farm lane until you see the ruins of the limestone fence through the line of trees.
