Frontier Red Hill Cemetery
Frontier Red Hill Cemetery is in southwest Van Zandt County here in Texas. It dates back to 1856 when two sisters died two days apart. There are several confederate soldiers buried in the cemetery too. There are numerous graves of young children, some just a day old, some three to four years of age at their passing. Goes to show how tough times and disease ravaged the land. One family had buried 4 children in a 5 year span. The cemetary is actually very well caried for by a volunteer group and is used to this day, although not often.
