 Josephine, Hunt Co Cemeteries of Tx

Submitted by Elaine Nall Bay and Patricia Nall

Available Obits

The town of Josephine is located in Collin Co., but the cemetery is located just across the county line in Hunt Co. Josephine is located between Caddo Mills and Nevada on FM6.

From Josephine, travel east on FM 6. Outside the city limits, pass the "Hunt Co." line sign. Turn south onto Co. Rd 2606. Travel 1.2 miles to the cemetery. The road begins as a paved road, turns into a dirt road, and then a gravel road. Consequently, the road is not safe to drive on during rainy weather.

Inscription on south entrance: "Reeds Chapel stood on this site for many years, for which the cemetery was called. The first known burial was about 1875. To show tribute and respect a new fence and the memorial entrance was erected in 1958.

The listing of burials is alphabetical since it is small enough to located the exact burial plot easily. Those buried in a family plot will be indicated in the "Comments" column.
