Hood County, Texas
This small cemetery is in Hood County near Tolar, Texas. It is fenced and has the name in a metal archway above the entrance gate. Each time we have visited, the area has been well kept. To travel to Antioch Cemetery from Granbury, go to the second blinking traffic light in Tolar. Turn right onto State High- way #56 north. Travel on the highway for 4.6 miles. The cemetery will be on the right side and very near to the road- way. It is easily seen. Jo Ann and Dustin Massey and I catalogued the graves on a cold, windy day in early March, 1990.

Regarding Antioch cemetery:
If possible, the following two names should be added to the list of
those buried at Antioch, near Tolar.
GEORGE W. BROWN b. 3 DEC 1811 d. 6 SEPT 1891
MARY MOORE-BROWN b. unkown d. 14 FEB 1910
The grave of George W. Brown was marked as of 1978, and 1986, but the
stone was badly damaged. A new flat stone for George W. Brown was
placed in July 1991, after the 1990 inventory by Mary Kate Durham. There
was/is no marker for Mary Moore-Brown.
Your site is very well done and greatly appreciated!
