This plat map was designed from a hand-drawn diagram of the cemetery that is stored at the local county courthouse. The director of the nearby Irving Area Historical Museum, Lemar Hartman, has been very helpful in locating it and other cemetery association records. Interment books and other sexton records are not known to exist.


The cemetery is divided into two sections, or “blocks.” Block 1 has no interments (it is vacant) and sits at the “front” of the cemetery. It  faces east towards  McCord Trail, the public road in front of the cemetery.

Some cemetery lots are identified  by handwritten names in the original document and these are included on the modern plat map. Whether these are lot owners or interments is not known. The date that the original document was created and who created it is unknown.
