Name Unknown Cemetery in Seagoville, Texas

Located on Simonds Rd.; may have been for Sand Branch Comunity

R.F. Bunting walked and recorded as many of the stones as were readable. He feels this may have been a family plot or a small church cemetary that the church closed. Most of the stones are hand carved.
