To get to Hutchison Cemetery take CR 1536 west off Hwy 101 just north of TXI Crusher (about 2 miles south of Chico). The cemetery is in a chain link fence on the north side of the VERY dusty road.
There were only 4 headstones (September 2000).

Saunders Cemetery is one of those
hard-to-find, lost-in-the-pasture type.
About half way between Chico and the Bridgeport Lake dam on Fm Rd 2952 (south of CR1536 and north of CR 1543) you turn northeast (a "Y") on to a gravel road with no sign on it. The road goes by Dynegy Hanna Compressorstation and then to an oil well on the left.
Go through an oil field gate to the right of the oil well and then down in the pasture to the right. This is more or less a four wheeler trail. About a half mile down the hill you will have to look hard to see the chain link fence back in the woods to your left.
The cemetery is close to one of the crushers. At one time it had a real nice rock fence around it but some of it is knocked down now. A chain link fence is around the rock fence now.
I found 12 headstones at Saunders Cemetery in September of 2000.
