A cemetery transcription of the Cross Cemetery in Fannin County, Texas.
The Cross family settled on the Bois d’Arc creek north of Lannius in the 1840’s. A Mr. Newton married one of the Cross daughters. There are several graves but are either not marked or the stones are completely illegible.

My family once owned the land on which I believe the Cross Cemetery was located. My father owned the land from about 1951 to 1962 or 1963. We lived on the property during the total period of ownership. I was born 04/29/51 and lived on the property until we sold it and moved to Bonham. The cemetery was a favorite play area for my siblings and I. FM 897 which now runs thru the property but stopped at Lannius until 2020 when it was extended to FM 1396. CR 2945 ran from Lannius thru our property crossing BoisDarc Creek at the edge of our property. I would like to revisit the Cross Cemetery but have been unable to locate it as it may have been moved during the construction of FM897 in 2019 and 2020. I seek information of a more exact location of the cemetery if it still exists.
