Center Point Cemetery

Fannin County, Cemeteries of TX

Transcribed for John W, "Dub" Duncan by Debbie Evans

The Center Point Cemetery is located in Fannin County 4 miles northeast of Wolfe City , Texas , on the north side of Highway #34. T. A. Rowland donated the land for the cemetery, in the 1890ís, for the burial of a family member. His mother, Elizabeth Rowland, died at the age of 104 and is buried in this cemetery, also there may be others buried here in unmarked graves.

" When I was three years old, my father bought a home north of where Center Point Cemetery is now. I grew up there. Daddy, T. A. Rowland, gave land to build a church. Later a friend had what we called lingering Consumption. She begged them not to bury her at Rehabeth. Then country folks didn't bury their dead in town, but they buried their family in the country where they lived. They asked if she could be buried in the corner of the pasture near the church, and my father said, "Yes." After the funeral my daddy built a rail pen around the grave, so the cows wouldn't step on it. Later other folks wanted to be buried there. Finally, my father told the community if they would help build a fence, he would give them a cemetery there. I have a large family buried there-----mother, father, sisters, brothers, grandmother, nieces, nephews, and one precious child who passed away at the age of 15." --Minnie Ada Rowland Branch Thisisfrom aprinted in an article she wrote for the Ladonia Paper in the late 1950's. submitted by Leisa Branch Urbantke
