Crim's Chapel Cemetery is located on Highway 322 about 3 miles from Henderson. About five years ago (1994)  the Gibson Cemetery was moved from it's location a few miles further down Highway 322, to Crim's Chapel Community when Texas Utilities Company bought the land for strip mining.   

The first inventory of the Gibson Cemetery was made in 1970 and only one grave with dates existed in 1993. There are probably ten to twelve unmarked graves that were moved, with a brick now for a marker and the following marked ones:

Ferguson, William d 1885 aged 5 years

Ferguson, Marion d 1882 aged 5 years

Gibson, Sarah Ann Feb 27 1829-Sep 16 1867

Gibson, Lucy (Toney) June 14 1881 Sept 13 1934

As you walk into the side gate the first grave that you see on the left is that of Carl  T. Batt 1874-1961 and his wife Maggie M.  Mr. Batt was the author of "My Old Missouri Home"
