Blevins-Cason Cemetery

Blevins-Cason Cemetery is a large public cemetery located about two miles northwest of the community of Cason. It was established prior to the civil war. Speculation has been that the cemetery was founded by Abraham Blevins for whom the cemetery is named and who is buried there but court records show the land was originally surveyed and patented by the Riddle family. Annie Riddle had one of the earliest monuments after having died in 1856 and buried in the cemetery. The land was eventually sold to Abraham Blevins who is buried there and hence the name, Blevins Cemetery. The cemetery is fenced and kept in very good condition. A cemetery Association has been formed to oversee the maintenance, allocate space, and administer the perpetual care. Meetings are held at the Cemetery on the first Sunday in May at 2 PM.

From Mt. Pleasant, TX Titus County courthouse, proceed South on Madison Street for 0.3 miles to Ferguson Road (TX 49). Turn left (east) on Ferguson (TX 49) and go 8.3 miles.
