White Oak Springs Cemetery
Guardian: John Michael Mars

White Oak Springs is a beautiful little cemetery located a short distance from Interstate Highway 30 in rural Southwest Titus County. It has been completely surrounded by the Texas Utility coal mine but the buffer zone left around the cemetery and the White Oak Springs Missionary Baptist Church leaves a comforting feeling of isolation. The cemetery remains active for public burials and a committee looks after the continued well being of the cemetery. An annual memorial service is held on the third Saturday of the month. Private donations from friends and relatives of those interred here are used to maintain the cemetery. The grounds are fenced with a chain link fence. Inside the fence, a great covering of carpet grass and nice landscaping attest to the excellent care the cemetery receives. The adjacent church has recently disbanded and the grounds occupied by the church will be added to the cemetery’s grounds.

Over the years, the markers such as rocks, etc. that were used to mark the existing graves that didn’t have monuments have been removed thereby losing the locations of those graves. Still, one can find some markers still existing such as: two pieces of petrified wood, five native stones, two small graves bordered in concrete, a flat marble slab, a section of metal water pipe, two unreadable funeral home markers (FHM) and a monument base with the monument missing.

To reach the White Oak Springs Cemetery from the Titus County court house take Jefferson Street (Business US 271) north 1.5 miles to the intersection of Jefferson with the northern service road of I-30. Turn left onto the service road and enter I-30 west bound. Continue on I-30 for 6 miles and take Exit 156. At the stop sign turn left and cross to the Southern service road. At the stop sign turn right (west) onto the Southern service road and proceed for 0.1 mile to the intersection from the left of County Road (CR) 2500 (CR SW 9) and turn left onto CR 2500. Proceed for 0.5 mile to the intersection from the left of CR 2520 (CR SW 36) and turn left. After approximately 0.2 mile the road dead ends at the church and cemetery.
