   Dabney Cemetery is located on northwest side of Decatur, just out of the city limits. From Decatur go north on Business 287 (or old 81). Turn right on CR 2090, this is north of the 380 bypass but south of where Business 287 intersects Hwy 287. Go to the end of the road, about a half of a mile, and cross a cattle guard. Go past a white frame house on the left and a barn on the right. The cemetery is on the right on the top of the hill under 3 trees.

  

  

  

    When Rosalie Gregg and Carla Womack took us to this cemetery in March 2002 there were 6 headstones. They were all standing, but the cemetery is in the pasture and has no fence around it. Five of the stones are old, but the one for Jerome Dabney is new and has been set since the cemetery was recorded in 1967 by Mr. & Mrs. Homer L. Roper and Mr. & Mrs. W. Cletus Johnston. The information from their listings appears in parenthesis in the data below.
  
The headstone of Buford Dabney has a birth date of 1799. This is one of only three dates from the 1700ís that we have seen engraved on headstones in Wise County.
