Photos of Decker Prairie Cemetery
Montgomery County Texas
Submitted by Jo Ann Pipkin Londot
 

From Decker Prairie on Hwy 249 turn on Decker Prairie-Rosehill Road. Go approximately 2 miles and turn right. Wright Road Baptist Church is on corner of Decker Prairie-Rosehill Road and Wright Road. Go past this, and turn right on the first gravel road.

It is my understanding that there are two Deckers Prairie Cemeteries. The one that I have posted to is a white cemetery. I am attaching a copy of the people I have personally taken pictures of the graves. Virginia A. Pipkin is my aunt. The Lairds are relatives of Jettie Pipkin Laird who was my fathers half-sister.
