Welcome to Lee County Texas

Anniversary Cemetery

To preserve the history of old country cemeteries from being lost the below was taken from LEE COUNTY TEXAS CEMETERIES Volume I.  You can buy copies at
Texas Wendish Heritage Society

These directions were taken in Oct 1979, so they may not be completely accurate as of today, 2/18/2015.

From Tanglewood, Texas take Highway 77 north, turn right on County Road 415, go 2 miles, turn right on Watson Road for .3 miles, turn left for .5 miles to a wire gap into a pasture, then .4 mile to the old home place of Clyde Gates, walk east.

This cemetery located in area of Anniversary Methodist Church and Mt. Zion Baptist Church. Located on what was then Robertson land. Mr. Clyde Gates lived near this cemetery in 1931 and 1932. When his family came to this area in 1908 the cemetery was here. They used to have camp meetings near the cemetery, also it was a community gathering place where they played base ball and had dances. Mr. Gates' brother played the fiddle and sang for the dances. Mr. Gates in 76 years old, he took us to this area. We were unable to find any signs of markers, but Mr. Gates gave us the names herein, as people he remembers being buried here.

This List is NOT complete......yes I need help.
