Welcome to Lee County Texas

Evergreen Cemetery

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

These directions were taken in 1965, so they may not be completely accurate as of today, 1/22/2021.


About one mile south of present Lincoln, on the farm of Ernest Schiwert near Elm Creek on FM 1624. The oldest marker is for Nancy McKeown and her death is shown as October, 1857.
It is believed there were earlier burials in this cemetery but that these
early graves do not have markers.
