In Reply to: Re: WINFIELD CEMETARY by Laura of 337

Laura, there are many, many small cemeteries near Winfield. As an example, my great-great grandfather died in Winfield and was buried in the church cemetery where he preached. His wife and children were buried 10 miles north. He could not be buried with his family because wagons could not get through the mud to the family plot. That was 1915. My great-grandfather was John C. Smith who lived in the same area and was buried in Greyrock Cemetery. I'll ask around and search my records. I have written down many Smith markers while tracing family. Winfield was a very, very thriving city in 1904. When my dad was a boy in the late 30s there were 4 doctors, 3 dentists several banks, several grocery stores, cotten gins etc which was more than Mt. Pleasant had (the titus county seat). Lots of good history there. Get back with you.
