Text: Also known as the Old Tunis Cemetery, this burial ground originally served a pioneer area of the fertile Brazos valley. Graves date from the 1840s, and John and Sarah Wright Echols formally set aside land in 1867 for this graveyard and a Baptist Church, which disbanded in 1883. The headstones preserve the names of farmers, veterans, families and pioneers, including Judge John Gregg (1798-1848), a Texas War for Independence veteran, planter and Milam County justice. A cemetery association maintains the site, preserving the rich history of the valley.
