Notes:

This cemetery is listed because it is on the “1999 Cemeteries & Historical Markers of Williamson County, Texas” map.  The map shows the location as:   [8350] E FM 1105, after sharp left turn, after CR 316 – not far from the Holy Trinity Cemetery at 8600 E FM 1105.  The cemetery’s existence could not be verified in 2019.

Unverified tidbit that might explain why this cemetery was mapped in 1999:  “My wife talked to a woman yesterday who had some information about the Corn Hill Cemetery. In the beginning there were two cemeteries  behind the church. One was the main church cemetery. The other one was what she called the “Anglican” cemetery for suicides, unbaptized babies and the like. Over time, attitudes changed and the graves in the Anglican cemetery were reinterred in the church cemetery. Over the course of more time the cemetery expanded and all the graves are now in the single cemetery we see today. I don’t know if this helps you or not, but I thought I’d send it along.”…”I think it’s a likely, or at least a possible explanation. She said the church might have tried to hide that fact out of embarrassment over the “Anglican” cemetery, which I think is also likely.”  Source Clay Coppedge May 2019
