In late September Bill C. Smith, Cleburne, TX and I (Frank Saffarrans)
went to the far south west corner of Hood County to visit Bull Cemetery
and photograph and record the tombstones. You may view the photographs
and inscriptions at:


John Bull (1818 -98), born in Tennessee, came to Texas in 1853;
preempted land here (far SW corner of Hood County) in 1861. Land grant
was approved in 1871. The cemetery was established on his property. This
property is now on the JAE BAR FLETCH (J-F) Ranch.

Earliest identified burial 1872

Approximately 60% of burials were children under 5 years.
