Martin Family Cemetery

Shelby County Texas

Information provided by Pat Jones July 27, 2000


The cemetery is locate off Highway 7 East and FM road 2608 on private property.  It is in need of care, it is somewhat abandoned.  In 1997 a Martin reunion was held at the American Legion Hall in Center.  The host of the reunion was D.W. Martin.  At that time a collection was collected for the purchase of a fence.  There are three small graves that have no dates only some worn toys which were probably left by cleaning of the site.
