Price Family Cemetery, Lamar County, TX


A cemetery is incorrectly referenced as the Price Cemetery in LOST, ABANDONED, FAMILY AND SMALL COMMUNITY CEMETERIES by Patricia Armstrong Newhouse. All entries from that publication are in the Strother Cemetery.

Information on the Price Cemetery comes from the records of Elizabeth Booth. She does not state the actual location of this cemetery except that it is on the farm of Guy Decker. It is believed that Mrs. Booth acquired this information in the 1970's. It should not be confused with Strother-Price or Price-Glory Cemeteries. The burial ground contains the first wife of Pinckney M. Price, Anna Richardson Price, and three of their children.

As of 2011 the cemetery has been cleaned up and the headstones repaired by Lawrence Ray Price (Jones Automotive Services, 2260 NE Loop 286, Paris, TX 75460).

Of the four graves here, the oldest is the grave of William Robert Price who died 31 May 1851. The following persons are known to be buried here: Anna Elizabeth Bell Price 7 Nov 1858 - 8 Jul 1859, Anna Richardson Price 22 Feb 1830 - 7 Feb 1859, Martha Jane Price 7 Jan 1855 - 23 Aug 1855 and William Robert Price 19 Feb 1850 - 31 May 1851.
