Old Willow Point Cemetery is located across the road
and to the northwest of the present cemetery. Itís near where the old town of
Willow Point was located. At one time there were 50 to 60 graves at this site.
From FmRd 2210 turn right on CR 3825. The cemetery is back in the woods behind a pink house. Itís on the Doyle Sheppard place that now belongs to his daughter, Betty Lou Massey. The gate at the road is locked and you will need to get permission to enter. From the barn, go across a creek to the northeast. The cemetery is in the woods and scattered over about an acre.
In July 2001 we found 6
headstones. There was a cement and pipe fence around the Bloodsworth and Allen
headstones. The Roberts grave had a rock border around it.
Thank you to Jim Stegall for helping us find this cemetery.
The information in parenthesis ( ) in the table below came from an earlier survey that the Wise County Heritage Museum had in itís records. There were 7 headstones found at that time. Some information is from Bessie Sheppard, "Willow Point Cemetery Records"
