Alvord Cemetery is located on the north side of town. Start out of town on Fm Rd 1655 and turn left just past the water tower onto W. Woody or W. Greenwood Street. Both streets run into the cemetery. the picture above is the South Gate at Woody street. Below is a picture of the Middle Gate at Greenwood Street.
Inside the Middle Gate in the Middle Section is a Rock Sign that says Established in 1884.
In 2012 some headstones had been set in a new section just to the right of the Middle Gate. This new section was called 4E (East).
At the time of our survey in October of 2000 we found 2,010 headstones. In 2012 the cemetery was partially updated. Section 4E was added and all new headstone pictures were taken in the North Section 3. This section 3 was all renumbered. A few new pictures and headstones were photographed in Sections 1 and 2. At that time 2,147 were found.
The picture above is the road between Sections 2 and 3.
