       As you are leaving San Saba, San Saba County, Texas on  190 E. this cemetery sits on the left side of the road just  before you go around the curve as you leave town. There  is a paved country road that goes in front of the cemetery  but we did not see a sign    Catalogued and Photographed by  Wanda, Debra Westfall  & Amber Horton      

There is a large granite monument with the following names on it about the people buried there.
