A 1976 newspaper article from the Fort Worth Star Telegram
states that there
were once about 200 graves of early pioneers in this cemetery, whose stones were
destroyed in the 1940s. J. M. Maserang of Midlothian, and his sister, Mrs. Lena
Donze, have a brother and grandparents buried there. There was a school located
at Wyatt's Chapel, where pie suppers and "protracted" meetings were held.
land is now owned by the Methodist Conference.
The cemetery is located north of Mansfield at the
intersection of Highways 157
and 287 on the southwest corner. There are two markers, one for multiple
graves. There is no access road to the graves.
