Union Chapel Cemetery
Loraine, Mitchell County, Texas

Lat: 32° 26' 53"N, Lon: 100° 43' 50"W

Contributed by Lisa Hale, Sep 29, 2004 [lllhale@yahoo.com]. Total records = 24.

You will find this cemetery on county road 442 going north from Loraine, Texas. The cemetery is on the right side of road. Have to watch for it carefully.

I have not varified this as fact, but some people say this cemetery used to be a black cemetery, and was later used by all for burials. There used to be a school at Union Chapel.

When I was there this cemetery was very un-kept, high grass and weeds, except for a few plots, and there appeared to be many unmarked graves. I could have missed some markers of tombstones in the high grass. The cemetery appeared to be abandoned after the late 1970s.

I walked and read this cemetery in 1990. This includes all existing and legible stones and markers found at that time.
