    Waggoner Cemetery is north of Decatur. Go north out of town on Fm Rd 730. Turn left on CR 2360. Thereís a Historical Marker by the gate on the left side of the road. The gate is locked and the cemetery is down the oil field road about a half of a mile. Itís on the left side as the road dead ends in a circle around an oil well.

   

    Thank you to Wendy Dolphay for helping us get to this cemetery.
  
When we were there in December 2001 the county was having the cemetery surveyed with plans to fence it off from the pasture.
  
We found 12 headstones, but there were several graves marked with rocks.
  
The text on the Historical Marker at the gate is below.

Waggoner Cemetery
(One-quarter mile south)

Georgia natives the Rev. Henry Fullingim, his wife Martha, and their 17 children came to northeast Texas in 1849. Henry Fullingim served the area as a circuit-riding Methodist minister. Their son, Archibald, and their son-in-law, John Hale, came to Wise County in 1853 and were among the areaís first settlers. Hale became the first Wise County sheriff in 1856. This cemetery is named for John T. and Sarah Waggoner, on whose land it was established. Martha Fullingimís burial in 1868 is the first recorded here. The Waggoners deeded the property to Wise County in 1885.
