Pecos/Reeves: "Old Cemetery" Question
Posted by: Harriet Lora (ID *****6239) Date: October 28, 2002 at 13:57:53

Can anyone tell me where Old Cemetery is located specifically?

In a publication, Pecos Co. History, by the Pecos Co. Historical Commission, p. 353, mentions that the Old Cemetery was located just inside Reeves County "beside the spot where Welcome School once stood; people from Pecos County were buried there."

Among those buried there and mentioned in the above publication were my great-grandparents, JAMES ROBERT BOYD (1831-1914) and MARY ANN BOYD (1837-1913).

I would love to be able to locate the cemetery and pay respects to my great-grandparents.

I really need some help with this question! Thanks in advance,
Harriet Hanson Lora
