Other Information

When I went to try to find this Cemetery, there was not a sign on the road telling where it was, so we found a black gentle man that met us and he showed us that there is 2 separate cemeteries. The first one we found was for the African American families. We kept searching for Morgan Palmer and after crossing through another fence of over grown trees and vines, we found the original Old Moss Cemetery. The cemeteries are 2 miles down a very un-kept red dirt road that is sometimes impossible to travel. Old Moss Cemetery is in all the records for Nacogdoches, Texas.
