Oakwood Cemetery
Waco, McLennan County, Texas (Map of Oakwood Cemetery)

The McLennan family was moved to Oakwood in 1963 from the family cemetery on the Bosque River when Lake Waco submerged the old homestead. According to the Texas Historical Commission Historic Sites Atlas, the old cemetery is still there on the edge of the lake. However, if it is there, a cement company site sits on top of it, and their fence blocks access to the land.


Old North Church Cemetery
North of Nacogdoches, Nacogdoches County, Texas (Map of Old North Church)

Hurricane Rita took down the historic Old North Church oak tree in 2005. According to legend, as early as 1832, Nacogdoches settlers met and worshipped under this tree. In 1835, the 10 acres of land around the tree was donated for use as a graveyard and church site by Dr. John M. Sparks. The shade of the tree was where Elder Isaac Reed gave his first Baptist sermon after word of Santa Anna's defeat reached the settlers. Read about Old North Church at The Handbook of Texas Online.
Many of Abraham and Viney Sutphen's family are buried here, both inside and outside the cemetery fence. Scogin relatives are also buried here. There are more family members buried here than are shown below.
