Marker : 
The church and cemetery nearby have served the rural Corine 
area for more than a century. Founded in 1872, the church held early 
worship services in a log building, which also housed the community 
school. Early baptisms were held in nearby Neches River or in Carey 
Lake. The church met in three locations through the years. The cemetery,
which bears the name of the community, marks its origin with the burial of 
John Mixon in 1866. Veterans of several wars are buried here. The church 
and the cemetery continue to serve this part of Cherokee County
