Photographer's Note:

"While in Bigfoot TX recently I found an unknown, unnamed cemetery (near the Longview cemetery).

Direction to the cemetery:
From Moore TX, take FM 462 east towards Bigfoot. As soon as you cross over San Miguel Creek, take your immediate first right on CR2629 (Prue Lane) about 100-120 yards before the END OF Prue Lane. The cemetery will be on your right. Drive slow. It can easily be missed. It is under an old dead oak tree. I believe I cleared enough brush away that it can be seen from the road. (If you find out the name of the cemetery, I would appreciate a "yell back" as to its name.)

No one in Bigfoot knows anything about this cemetery. When I was inquiring about it, I spoke with a man named Jim Prue. Prue Lane is named after him. He is around 80 some years old. He told me he has lived there since the 60's. He knows the cemetery is there, but does not know the name. He said he patched up the broken headstones (from vandalism) a while back, but I told him the stones had been broken again.

I wonder why just a 10 year girl, and a 67 year old man is buried there; both with different last names. Where are the rest of the family buried?

I have been a member of findagrave.com for 7-8 years." - Mr. Pearson, Nov. 5, 2017
