In Reply to: Forest Hill Cemetery by Sandra Wortham of 1902

On Find a Grave site they gave this information from the plaque --

Marker Reads: Forest Hill Cemetery - One of the oldest burial grounds in Tarrant County; named for its location and used for many years before record-keeping began. In 1883 landowner J.W. Chapman deeded the property to Forest Hill Cumberland Presbyterian Church. ("Cumberland" was later dropped from the name.) Among the many interments of pioneers were Press and Jane Farmer, who lived at site of Fort Worth before the U.S. Army established the Fort in 1849. The cemetery is full although few headstones are visible, as most graves were unmarked or marked with field stones that have since disappeared.

Since it's been designated an historical landmark someone should have a list of those cemeteries. The Fort Worth library has a nice genealogy collection and they might know who to contact about historical cemeteries.

Happy Hunting (^_^)
