Sabine Co. Cemeteries of TX

Location: Off State Highway 87, north of Milam

Historical Marker Inscription:
Virginia-born Dr. Richard A. Meader (1808-1853) and his wife, Mary Ann (Tucker) (1818-1864), came to Sabine County in 1844 and built a home near this site. Their young child, Sarah, died in 1850, and the family buried her in their garden, since there was no public cemetery at that time. The garden was firmly established as the Meader Family Cemetery with the burial of other family members, many of whom were important in the development of Sabine County. There are approximately forty graves here, which are maintained by the Meader Family Cemetery Association.
