Binnion Cemetery
Home
Site Map

The Binnion Cemetery is located in rural north Titus County, TX.  The cemetery is fenced and well maintained in a rustic setting currently by the Maple Springs Missionary Baptist Church.  Joseph Binnion gave the cemetery property and according to Lynch Harper, Binnion helped bury an Indian child there in 1866.  Jackie Stinson was told the same story and indicated the unmarked location of the grave is in the southwest corner of the cemetery.  The earliest death on any existing monument was that of Sarah Bryan, wife of N. A. Bryan, shown as September 30, 1873.  At one time, it is believed a church existed on the opposite side of the road from the cemetery.

From the Titus County court house, take Jefferson Street (Business 271) 1.5 miles north to the intersection with Greenhill Road (FM2152).  Turn right onto FM 2152 and proceed north 12.9 miles to a sign on the left that says “Bennion Cemetery”.  The sign is alongside a gate to an oil lease.  The cemetery is approximately 200 yards west of FM 2152.  Coordinates: 33o20.785'N  095o03.388'W

There is a petrified stone marking one grave, 2 old boards marking 2 other sites and at least 10 unmarked stones marking others.  In addition to those listed herein, Taylor Russell in his book “History of Titus County” lists Tollman Smith, William P. & Roxanna Harrison Oliver’s  10 children.
