Mt. Moriah

MOUNT MORIAH CEMETERY  memorial gifts and/or donations can be made to J. O. Tohill, 2259 CR 3343, Omaha, Texas 75571.

 

Please visit the personal page of Dana Thomas for information and pictures of this cemetery (offsite).

 

LOCATION: Five miles north of Omaha on US 259, then turn left onto CR 3340. At 2.2 Miles this road turns sharply left again. Go another 1.3 miles and turn right on CR 3336 at Mt. Moriah sign. This narrow lane enters four closed cattle gates. Take care to close each gate.

This cemetery was almost lost, but members of the Mt. Moriah Church started a clean-up and restore project of the cemetery a few years ago. They wanted to save a portion of their heritage. The cemetery is in a remote area; it has three acres and it is believed to have at least 120 graves. Some of these are not marked. The church was apparently started sometime between 1846 – 1850. The cemetery was probably started about the same time.

Cemetery was read December 2, 1998 by Charles Steger, John Livingston, Connie Draper, Irene Powell, Kathryn McAlexander and Melba Tims reading from the northwest corner.

This cemetery is known to be predominantly white.
