Phillips Cemetery

Phillips Cemetery

Falls County, Texas
31 09.061' N 97 00.780' W
Directions: Start at the intersection of CR-307A and SH-77. The cemetery is on the northwest corner of the intersection.

Historical Marker: Ezekial Thomas Phillips (1830-1905), a Civil War veteran, moved his family to Falls County in 1869. His son Robert M. Phillips (b. 1857) died in a shooting accident on March 18, 1883, a short time before his wedding. He was buried on this tract, which was to have been a wedding gift from his father. Requests for burials at this site were so numerous that Phillips donated the land as a public cemetery in 1903. There are 350 known graves, including those of Phillips and his wife Louise "Lucy" Jane (Wade) (1836-1897). Phillips Cemetery has served residents of the area for over a century.
