 This cemetery is nearly destroyed. It was referred to as the Woelburge/Wolberg land and cemetery though none are known buried there. In the past 15 years it has more stone pieces. It is located about a mile NE of Allen’s Chapel on the Allens Creek.


According to a story written by Floy Hodge, Elbert J. Allen wed Joshua Morgan’s daughter (Jemima) two months after his wife died. After which time Joshua Morgan left to the California Gold mines and died on the way.

Another grave is close by but I have not placed it yet: Cynthia Morgan 1799 – 1846 is recorded as buried north of this on Elbert Allen’s land, died Sep 05 1846 age 47, Joshua Morgan came to Texas in 1838 to Lamar County and this was his second wife Cynthia Bonnas. It is described as a large native stone well done and will “last the ages”.
