Friendship Cemetery (there's more than one in Wise County) is located just a couple of hundred feet from the Parker County line. From Springtown go northwest on the Jacksboro highway (Hwy 199) and turn north on Salt Creek Road. In a about a mile, just into Wise County, you can see the 2 headstones over a small hill on the right side of the road.
There was lots of
construction in the area in April of 2001 when I found these 2 headstones. There
was a sign that said Lot 13/12.
Susan Graf sent some extra information about the Penrod headstone. I included that data in parenthesis in the table.
