Mt. Moriah Cemetery,
Morris County, Texas
Five miles north of Omaha on
US 259, then turn left onto CR 3340. At 2.2 miles this road turns
sharply left again. Go another 1.3 miles and turn right on CR
3336 at Mt. Moriah sign. According to my friend
Connie, in 1998 this road went through a pasture and wasn't very well kept.
In 2004 we found a paved road through the pasture.
Quoting from Morris County Texas
Section by Cass County Genealogy Society:
"This cemetery was almost lost, but members of the Mt. Moriah
started a clean up and restore project of the cemetery
a few years ago.
They wanted to save a portion of their heritage.
The cemetery is in a remote area; it has three acres and
believed to have at least 120 graves. Some of these are not marked.
The church was apparently started sometime between 1846-1850,
the cemetery was probably started about the same time."
Dedicated to Mr. Forrest Clair
for his generosity of time and patience
with 3 genealogy friends
who braved the cold to visit this cemetery.
Thanks for showing
us the way :)
P.S. we did not see your bonnet wearing "girlfriend."
To my friends Lynn and Connie: Thanks for a wonderful day!
