Notes:

WCHC’s Vol I, pg 289 Per Van & Ann Tipton 1975..””small cemetery on the old Schwertner home place about 1 mile S of Schwertner off of FM 1105. Presently consists of two small fenced plots. Remains of several have been removed from this cemetery to other sites.”

Per John Christeson on Find-A-Grave..”this is a small abandoned cemetery, overgrown with brush, small saplings & ground cover located in a pasture on Eugene Schwertner Farms No.81. To reach this cemetery turn S on FM 1105 at Schwertner, cross the bridge & park in front of the gate (triangle is a metal fence with the sign Eugene Schwertner Farms No. 81) at the junction of FM 1105 & CR 322. From the gate proceed NE across the pasture & you will soon see the remnants of the cemetery fence at the edge of the trees. There is only one Schwertner grave in this cemetery.”

In 2018, this cemetery is maintained by the “Cemetery Restoration Volunteers” as one of the abandoned cemeteries maintained on a rotation basis of 20 cemeteries in Williamson County.  The volunteers are under the direction of WCHC’s Cemetery Committee Chair, Wayne Ware.  In 2019, there are 9 volunteers, using their own equipment.  Donations received by WCHC help to defray costs of restoring tombstones.
