Historical Marker

20 mi. NW of Jasper via SH 63 to E. R 255, then .7 mi. to CR 062, 1 mi. to church and cemetery (junction CR 062 and CR 066)

Begun in 1860 as a family graveyard, the earliest burial in this cemetery is that of Martin H. Dean, infant son of William P. M. and Mary Ann Dean. Land for the cemetery and Ebenezer Methodist Church was given by the Deans to the community in 1861. Among those interred here, in marked and unmarked graves, are citizens of the Republic of Texas, a veteran of the Texas Revolution, two unknown cowboys who died while traveling through the area, and members of the Dean and other pioneer families. An additional acre was acquired for the cemetery in 1962.
