STROUDS CREEK CEMETERY HOOD COUNTY, TEXAS
To get to the cemetery from the Square in Granbury, travel Hwy 377 West to Tolar, 9 miles, to the second blinking traffic light there. Turn right on FM 56N and drive 2 1/2 miles. On the right side of the road there is a very legible Strouds Creek Cemetery sign. Turn right and follow a gravelled road that winds up to the cemetery which is located on the side of a small hill. The cemetery association has ensured that perpetual care is provided for the cemetery, and it is beautifully kept. Members of the Hood County Genealogical Society read the cemetery on January 20, 1995. ADAMS, Harold Douglas,b.Feb.1,1923,d.Feb.1,1923. S.M.,b.Sept.28,1869,d,Apr 4,1894, Wife of A.
