Johnson Cemetery

Hopkins Co, Cemeteries of Texas

by June E. Tuck and Deborah Tuck Young

Cemetery is located between Cumby and Sulphur Springs. From Sulphur Springs, go west on the north service road along I 30. After you pass the Brashear exit, still stay on the service road. Look for a large two story home on your right, setting back in a pasture. Windows are all missing. Can see it real well. This is the home William Johnson was building when he died. Looking at the house, the cemetery would be on your right in the joining pasture, in a grove of trees. I really doubt if any thing is there now. Cemetery was indexed in the 1970's Picture was made of his stone in the cemetery. Several unmarked and lost graves in this cemetery. Very bad condition.
