Notes:

WCHC’s Vol III, pg 119:  Per Ruth Mantor…”From intersection of Hwys 95 & 79. Go S on 95 .4 of a mile to FM 112 (Walnut). Go E 2.1 miles to FM 619. Turn S & go through Beyersville, Structure, & Beaukiss, 13.2 miles. (Do not take the spur of 619). Turn in at the first gate past the “David Ervin Lawhon historical marker located in Lee County”.

The cemetery is located in Williamson County.

In 2016, the gate leads you into the Down Home Ranch. Follow the road into the ranch & go past the traffic circle & then follow the road N until you see the cemetery on your left. On the 1999 map, it shows the cemetery on the banks of the Middle Yegua Creek.

This cemetery was created on land donated by Marmaduke Gardner, who along with his wife is buried in this cemetery.

Per Wayne Ware: “Cemetery is maintained by Dennis Awbrey who led me to the cemetery and is a descendant of both the Gardners and the Lawhons buried here. He has a wealth of information about the people buried here.”
