The cemetery is located on F.M. 139 in the Stockman Community area.  It is on the property of David and Marjorie Griffin.   It is, for all practical purposes, abandoned.  It is very much overgrown and most of the markers have been removed or destroyed and it is believed that some of the graves were washed out during heavy rains and flooding.   About 10 foot markers were found which leads us to believe that they have been removed or destroyed.  The cemetery is not accessable by vehicle and it is recommended that one not  visit the cemetery, due to the current residents concern about injury and/or liability.  Thanks to Louis Jones for is assistance in obtaining entry to this cemetery.
