St. John's - Tenaha

Shelby County Texas

Transcribed by John Warner and Ray Jackson June 8, 2000

Take Highway 96 to Tenaha turn left onto Highway 59, just passed the underpass is MLK Street turn left onto the street to St. John's Baptist Church.  The cemetery is located at the rear of the church.  The cemetery is in dreadful condition, very much over grown and in need of maintenance.  Due to the growth and down trees, obtaining all the information in the cemetery is not possible.  There are many more graves in the cemetery, but undergrowth prohibits recording.
