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!

Thank you.

It is the first stone bearing Mary Moore Brown’s name, the 2nd to mark Lottie Brown’s burial and the 3rd stone to record George Washington Brown’s name. The name of Martha Vandergriff, likely buried in Arkansas, is included for the historical information.
