Submitted by  Jimmy D. Harris

The directions:. Take State Highway 6 north from Hempstead for about 18 miles to FM 2. Take a right on FM2 and go east for about 4.2 miles. Turn right on County Road 323 then proceed about 3.0 miles until County Road 325 intersects CR 323 as CR 323 makes a sharp turn to the right. Take a left on CR 325 and go about 0.3 miles to the gate to #5347 CR 325. The cemetery is about 1500 feet south of the road.

I am attaching a picture that shows my great grand father and great grandmother's graves as well as my grand father and grandmothers grave (the  double headstone). If you look closely you can see my great granddad's Civil War marker at his feet.

My great grandfather fought at the Battle of San Jacinto when he was 16
years old and later fought in the second part of the Revolution in   1841-1842
 and served as a Captain of the Grimes County Gray's during the Civil War.
 His family received one of the Mexican land grants from Stephen F. Austin


The two tall gravestones are James Bell Stephenson on the left and Malissa Jane (Maxwell) Stephenson on the right.

The double gravestone in the front is for Washington Green Harris Jr. and his wife Louisa (Stephenson) Harris.
