Winfield Cemetery

The Winfield Cemetery is a large public cemetery located South of the Town of Winfield in the far Southwestern section of Titus County and almost to the border with Franklin County. The community of Winfield was originally named Barrett and there has been a confusion of names with respect to Winfield and Barrett Cemeteries. Barrett cemetery lies North and East of the town of Winfield while Winfield cemetery is South of the town. Winfield Cemetery must have had it’s beginning around the turn of the 19th century since two monuments bear the dates of 1898. There have been significant additions to the land incorporated by the cemetery and there appears ample room for expansion. The cemetery is fenced with chain link fencing and is well maintained. Access roads divide the cemetery into quadrants that have been designated Northeast (NE) immediately to the left of the entrance, Northwest (NW) immediately to the right of entrance, Southeast (SE) the section after the East/West roadway on the left and Southwest (SW) the section after the East/West roadway on the right.

According to Lynch Harper in his “Cemeteries of Titus County”, there were numerous stones marking locations of graves without monuments. The only stones remaining are 3 pieces of petrified wood. However, 3 clay pots and 2 ceramic urns marked other grave sites and 6 unreadable funeral home markers (FHM) were found at others. A Cemetery Memorial is conducted annually on the 4th Saturday in April at 1:00 P. M. Business concerning the cemetery is conducted at that time.
