From Groesbeck go South on FM 937. Turn right on LCR 760. Go down to LCR 784 and turn right. This Cemetery is on the right about 1/4 mile on LCR 784.
According to Ray Gammon, g-g-grandson of Mary Jane Ferrill, J. W. Vandyke bought the land on which Phifer cemetery is located in about 2001. Mary Jane Ferrill is his gr-grandmother.
This cemetery is is kept in good condition.
I walked and surveyed this cemetery in 2002. This includes all existing legible headstones.
