China Spring Cemetery
China Spring, McLennan Co. Cemeteries of Tx
Submitted by Teresa K.
Comments: I began in 1995 recording this cemetery where my grandparents and her parents, my father (in 1999) and my grandmother's older brother and his wife are buried with a few others kin by some hook or crook. I have it divided between 'Right Side' and 'Left:. When Lake Waco was to be enlarged in the late 1950s-early 1960s, several cemeteries had to be moved. Some were moved, all or in part, to the China Spring Cemetery. On Eichelberger street in the cemetery are alot of unknowns from that removal project. Also, the mexican laborers from Tom Primm's farm were moved to China Spring. However, due to racism at that time there were those who did want the mexicans included in the main part of the cemetery. In the first book done on the cemetery in 1981 it is noted that these folks graves are missing. Not any more. Mowers uncovered the graves in 1995 or 1996, I can't recall. Bob Baker is the one charge of the cemetery and he asked me if I'd found the mexican graves. I acknowledged knowing of them but couldn't find them. He told me where and sure enough they were. This area isn't named and so I call it Primm Farm. I promptly recorded the information and had it added to the 1981 book at the library here. There are new graves that I haven't gotten out to record yet. My grandmother loved her home town of China Spring and it is in her memory that I have taken on this task. My index is divided- Right side and Left Side.
