Bluff Creek Cemetery
Scurry County, Cemeteries of TX
Location: East on Hwy 350 in Ira, Texas, turn left on Hwy 1606, go 3-7/10 mi. (this is right before you get to CR 3176 intersection will pass a house with a red tile roof). Turn left on Oilfield Road (You will see Anadarko Oil building marked with their name), past pumpjack through cattle guard. Will turn left at the tank battery, proceed down this road. Cemetery is on the right in pipe fence.
This cemetery is in poor condition... locals said it was worse, more overgrown and was not even fenced. The Anadarko Oil company fenced it in. There is a large oil line running through the cemetery that busted and spilled oil in the middle of the cemetery. There are not many graves now that have readable markers. Most buried here died in late 1800's or early 1900's. There are many unmarked graves or graves that were marked with sandstone that are now unreadable. The area is very rugged.. and neglected.
If anyone has more information please send it to me and I will add it. This is a partial listing only.
