Angelina Co. Cemeteries of TX
Submitted by Debra Coursey-Pitts and son D J
This cemetery located in Angelina County can be accessed by going out HWY.103W and turning right on FM.Rd.2021 ,
proceeding for approx.2 miles turn left on the Old Homer-Alto Road . As you travel down it you will come to a sign saying "Poskey Cemetery Road", however there is no road , just a trail to a forgotten cemetery barred by an iron rail. The cemetery is about 150 yards down this trail. It is very old and has not been used for some time. Other than the occasional visitors who have come to replace a family members faded & crumbling headstone , I dare say this place has not been visited for many years. It has tall, old cedar trees and crepe myrtle bushes that have grown into trees themselves. It has an unexplainable eerie atmosphere about it.

2 stones are UNKNOWN , (old and worn away)
There are several pieces of iron pipe and piles of stone in spots that look like they were intended to be used as markers at one time , but no way of telling for sure.
ADDITION / CORRECTION :
Emailed to me many months after my initial survey by "Shirley" a Warren reseacher:
Hester A. Warren was the wife of Calvin W. Warren. The birthdate for
Hester Warren is listed correctly. The death date is incorrect. Hester
lived until at least 1900 and died between 1900 and 1905.
Hester is found in the household of her husband on the following census record:
US Census, 1900 - Angelina Co., TX, Pct. 6, ED6, HH29, Sheet 2, T623_1607,
Book 2, Pg. 118B. Calvin W. Warren (age 58, born Mar 1842, married 34yrs,
born TN-TN-AL, occupation: Railroad Steam Pump Engineer) is found on this
census. Living in his household are the following: Hester (wife, age 55,
born May 1845, married 34yrs, born MS-MS-MS, 13 children born, 8 children
living), Salone (dau., age 16, born September 1883, born TX), Thomas F.
(son, age 12, born December 1887, born TX, occupation: farm labor), Tenna
(dau., age 10, born September 1889, born TX) and Cary B. (son, age 27,
born December 1872, born TX-TN-MS, occupation: farm labor).
Hester died between the 1900 census and 1905 when her husband, Calvin Warren, remarried. Calvin is shown on the 1910 census with his new wife of 5 years.
Can the 1882 date as Hester's death date be removed?
Thanks so much!
* personal note *
We post what is visible / or marked on tombstones. It is always a welcome addition to have corrected info submitted to us. Tombstone makers can sometimes make mistakes.Sometimes the correct info is not known and it will be engraved on the stone according to whatever is told to the stone maker. Sometimes we as surveyors misread the info or make "typos", we are not perfect,
that is why we thank you for viewing our work and sometimes correcting us.
