Chalk Mountain Cemetery

Erath County, Cemeteries of Texas

Sorry, cemetery inscriptions not available to us at this time. 

Location: 18 miles southeast of Stephenville on SH 67, then 1.5 miles south of village of Chalk Mountain

Historical Marker: The village of Chalk Mountain originated as a trading center before the Civil War. The earliest burial at Chalk Mountain Cemetery, the only burial ground to have served this community, is that of Abigal Davis (d. 1874), but the presence of unmarked burials indicates possible earlier use. Confederate veteran Hiram Berry Rogers (1840-1929) deeded the cemetery to the county in 1915. Over 350 graves, including those of Rogers and veterans of the Civil War, World Wars I and II, and the Korean War, are interred here. It has been maintained by a cemetery association since 1959.
