Dr. William Woolwine  June 14 1814 died May 19 1870

This cemetery is located just over the Rusk- Panola County line in Panola County. Traveling north on FM 1791 from Hwy 84, proceed to the intersection of FM 1791 from Hwy 84, proceed to the intersection of FM 999. The cemetery is located on the top of the ridge to the left, directly across from where FM 999 intersects with FM 1791, just above Springs of Living Water Church.  The cemetery is not visible from the road.

The stone for the Taylor family is relatively new -- a very large stone -- flat to ground. It must be about 4 feet from side to side, and about 18   inches wide -- was obviously added much more recently than when they died.   The words "Texas Pioneers" were at the bottom of the stone with William and  Pamela's names. That is the very large stone and it may have had both  couples on it -- one couple on the left and one on the right.

The stones are all in one place, within a few  feet of each other. Dr. Woolwine's stone is old and rests against a tree. The Taylor stone (s) is much newer and is behind the Woolwine stone. The  Murphy stone is to the right of Dr. Woolwine.

Please note that most of the Taylors were buried before< Dr. Woolwine..... the cemetery was started by the Taylor family for their loved ones and was a part of the land they owned.  The highway sign defines it as 'Taylor Cemetery as does the "Roads of Texas" book of maps.
I am a ggggranddaughter of William Taylor and gggranddaughter of William H.  My ggrandfather John is supposed to be there  also "under the sassafras tree".  My husband found a large old sassafras tree that is over the other Taylor graves.
The website mentions that the stones for the Taylors were newer that the others.....because the construction crews destroyed the original stones.  The Woolwine stone was moved...don't know where it should be.  The Taylor cousins from Garrison, Timpson and Nacogdoches erected  the new stones.  Bill Taylor  and  Gene Hudman, both from Timpson is also William, and William H.'s descendant and is the source of my info.
