Long Description:
The marker could not be found. The cemetery is private and locked. I did see a Texas Historical Cemetery marker, but not a medallion marker with a description.
Marker Number: 8988

Marker Text:
In 1845 Thomas Walters Dewalt (1822-1874) traveled from South Carolina and settled on nearby Oyster Creek. He soon established a plantation, and in 1850 set aside 1.2 acres of land for the burial of two sisters of Charlotte E. Brown, whom he married in 1858. However, the earliest marked burial here is that of Smyly Dewalt in 1869. The cemetery was formally set aside by deed in 1931. About 3.5 acres were added to the graveyard in 1983. Still in use, the Dewalt Cemetery is reserved for the Dewalt, Martin, Robinson, Roane, Bledsoe, and Cessna families. (1996)
