From Tanglewood, Texas take Highway 77 north, turn right on County

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.
