Prospect Cemetery presented by Carrie Woolverton, 2015

Prospect Cemetery

Prospect Cemetery is located on County Road 111, South of Rand, Texas, in Kaufman County. It is on the West side of the road in a large pasture surrounded by a grove of tall trees.  There is no driveway access to the cemetery from the road. To get to the cemetery, one must cross a barbed wire fence and walk about 1/4 mile through an overgrown pasture. 

The Cemetery is surrounded by a chain link fence. It is overgrown. Many stones are in disrepair and several have fallen over. The photos taken are all of the graves which could be located in the tall grass. 

There are at least two graves in the cemetery of Confederate veterans.
