From the courthouse in Crowell, take Highway 70 east for 2.3 miles
then go north on County Road 219 for 1.2 miles. The cemetery is
500 feet east of the road, just north of Mr. Carroll's house.
The Banister Cemetery is located on private land now owned by
Milburn Carroll Jr. John Banister came to Foard County in 1888
and gave five acres of land for the cemetery.
In 1998, Helen Whitfield, Jo Hitt, and Faye Statser made a written
and photo record of the graves. The only history and records found
of this cemetery were in this record, obituaries from the Foard
County news, and the book 'They Loved the Land.'
This account was compiled by me using the above resources, completed
on Nov 30, 2011.
