Hi Charles -

Interesting question. I haven't found any listing of a Boyette Baptist Church Cemetery.

I did, however, find this on wikipedia regarding the town of Boyette:

"Founding families included the Simmons, Hobsons, Sumners, Wilsons, and of course Boyettes. The town died when the railroad was removed and all the residents either died or moved away. The Boyette family; however, remained maintaining a relatively lucrative farming business. Their descendants still maintain a small portion of the former estate today. There are only two historical remains of Boyette. One is the old cemetery, which is still there but has not been found in years; it exists somewhere in a nearby pasture. The other is the Simpson family homestead which was founded near the year 1885."

Are you searching for Boyettes or another family? The Boyettes were also some of the early residents in Pasco County. If you provide me with names/dates,etc, I can try to do some additional searching. What an interesting discovery that "missing" cemetery would be!
