Beaver Creek Cemetery
Electra, Wichita County, Texas

Lat: 33° 54' 13"N, Lon: 98° 55' 19"W

Contributed by Julie Coley, Aug 07, 2006, last edited Aug 18, 2006 [neatstuffgifts@aol.com]. Total records = 175.

To reach from Electra take Highway 25 south to FM 2326. Turn west onto FM2326 for about 5 miles. Cemetery is on the left.

This cemetery has not been kept up, it has overgrown grass, many stones put in a pile at the entrance and other stones buried, unreadable or deep in the cedar trees.

Near the entrance to the cemetery is a dedication stone to the memory of the circuit riders and early settlers, who established the homes, the camp meeting ground, the church, the school and the cemetery for the Beaver Creek Community. This cemetery was established in 1884 and is still active today.

I walked and read this cemetery on Jul 31, 2005. This contains all existing and legible stones or markers. I have a photo of each one. If interested in a photo feel free to contact me.
