Anderson Co. Cemeteries of Tx

Submitted by Ricky B. Woolverton


The Hallum Grove Cemetery is located off a small black-topped road which turns west from Highway 19 one-half mile north of Bradford. It sits in the middle of a large pasture used for grazing cattle. Although this cemetery is very old, there are a few tombstones left that are in good condition. They have been protected by a wrought iron fence. There are several graves marked by rocks and a lot of graves that have no markers of any kind. According to some sources, this was a fairly large cemetery and had a lot of tombstones at one time. It is said that some of the stones were used to fill the old well on this site and others have been broken and destroyed over the years by the cattle that graze here.

  This was once a thriving community, with a school, church, and a gin and other businesses. It was named Hallum Grove due to a number of families named Hallum who settled there. At one time some Woolverton families and Ranks families lived there. Some other families who settled there were Millings, Billups, and Rehms. Members of this pioneer family include Mrs. Margaret M. Hallum Rehm, whose children were born near the Hallum Grove School in 1850 and later. Mrs. Minnie Price, daughter of Mrs. Margaret Rein, kept a record of her children’s births to 1902. all were born and reared in Hallum Grove. The Hallum slaves were used to build a road from Kickacoo to Wildcat Ferry. This information came from the family Bible and diary of Mrs. Rehm.

 There are only a few markers left in this cemetery. These were copied in 1986 by Elsie Goggans,  Marie Clark, and Faye Woolverton. According to some information in the Family History of the Ranks, written by Gladys (Hanks) Johnson, there were several Woolvertons buried in this cemetery and had tombstones, but we found none, so they have undoubtedly been destroyed.
