Shiloh Cemetery

This is an abandoned cemetery located in rural Northwest Titus County on the banks of Ripley Creek.It was obviously and early settlement founded before the Civil War.At one time, history tells us there was a church and post office nearby. The cemetery is on private grounds in a heavily wooded area.Most of the remaining monuments are down and rapidly deteriorating. Briars, underbrush and fallen trees obscure those monuments.Traylor Russell in his “History of Titus County” stated there were 25 monuments in the cemetery but only 10 remain.In addition to the found monuments there were 3 native rocks and a broken brick marking potential sites of other graves.Some depressions in the ground appear as other evidence of grave sites. The compiler wishes to thank True Mann and Claude Alexander for their guidance and assistance with the survey of this cemetery.

The cemetery can be reached from the Titus County court house by going west on West 1st Street for 0.3 mile to the intersection with Edwards Avenue. Turn right (North) on Edwards and proceed for 1.6 miles across US 67 and under Interstate 30 to a fork in the Road. Take the right fork (Old Paris Road) and continue 1.8 miles to the intersection of US 271. Proceed through that intersection and continue on County Road (CR)1200 (CR NW 4) for 6.0 miles to the intersection with CR 1250 (CR NW 36). After 0.7 mile the road will fork at the intersection of CR 1255 (CR NW 11). Take the left fork (continuing on CR 1250) for 0.4 mile. The cemetery lies about 400 yards to the right (North) of CR 1250 (CR NW 36), surrounded by dense woods. Property fence lines lie immediately East and North of the cemetery.
