Thomas Speake II of Hornsby Bend

I am trying to find the grave sites of Thomas II (1828-1914) and Priscilla Adeline Box Speake (1828-1894) near Hornsby Bend, Travis County.I have been to the grave sites and know that they are in a very, very small cemetary near Hornsby Bend and hidden from the road. However, I have only been there once (and that was over 20 years ago) so I don't remember exactly where to find them, and no one I know that is still living knows where the cemetary is either. They are not in the same cemetery as the Hornsbys, but in a small plot that (if memory serves) said Speake on all but one of the tombstones.
Does any one who is related to or knew of the following people have a record of either where the cemetary is or where the family farm was (because I think the plots are next to where the farm house used to be)? He is the son of Thomas and Elizabeth Speake, and she is the daughter of Marmaduke and Nancy Powell Box ---- they were all from Speakes (Speakesville) Texas.
Thomas II and Adeline's Children were:
Thomas J.W. Speake
Marmaduke Speake
Mary Ann Elizebeth Speake Bennett
Ezekiel W. Speake
LaDora Adaline Speake Dean
Lu Ella Speake Parks Shumate
Mattie G. Speake
Caldonia James Speake Smith

Thanks for any help I can get.
