San Augustine Co., Cemeteries of TX
DICKERSON-HEAD CEMETERY, San Augustine County, Texas was surveyed 29 October 2008 by Bob Britnell. (email@example.com) I guessed at the name of this cemetery; there is nothing to identify it but the names on the ten headstones. The earliest burial was probably Sarah Head (1879), but the most prominent
grave is that of Martha Dickerson, (1900) which is enclosed in a white picket fence covered with a tin roof. (If you visit this cemetery, be cautious entering that enclosure; it's guarded by 2 of the biggest, busiest wasp nests I've ever seen) The cemetery is sadly neglected, badly overgrown, and almost impossible to spot from the road.
DIRECTIONS: From the intersection of US96 and SR103 south of San Augustine, go west on 103 to FM1751; turn left (south) on 1751 and go 1.2 miles to the bridge over Chinquapin Creek. Just across the bridge there is an overgrown driveway on the right that is usable if you don't pull in too far.
