Cass County, Texas

  The land for the "Mt. Zion Baptist Church of Christ" and Cemetery was donated by ISAAC LEMMON and FELIX G. LEMMON on August 25, 1851, "to build a Baptist Church and school."   It is located by driving from the red light on U.S. Highway 59 in Jefferson, Texas, north approximately 9 miles to Farm Road No. 2683, then east approximately 1.6 miles. Turn right on a dirt road. The Church and Cemetery are located at the end of this dirt road (about 4/10 mile).    The cemetery is adjacent to the church and contains a burial mound of unknown indian(s) who had been buried there previously.   Samuel Asher, a charter member of the church, is said to be the first burial in this cemetery.  He was born about 1797.  His grave is not marked with a headstone. The original church building was made of split hewn logs with a huge rock chimney for heating.  The baptistry, called a pool in those days, was lined with split hewn logs, the work being done by the slaves under the supervision of their masters.  This pool, fed by a spring which has never been known to go dry, was used for baptisms until recent times. The "new" church building next to the cemetery had its first services on October 3, 1885, and the church disbanded in 1951 after celebrating its 100th anniversary.  The church building and cemetery has been maintained and remains open for visitors.  There is a Texas Historical Marker on the site. A "reunion" has been established for all who have loved ones or relatives buried in the cemetery, and is held on the second Sunday in June, beginning about 11AM with everyone bringing a covered dish for dinner on the grounds.

The inscriptions on the tombstones are shown in quotation marks ( "  " ).   Information found in the Church records concerning its membership and the editor's comments has been included in this listing in parenthesis (  ) . The Church records begin on July 26, 1851, are not available for the period between November 1885 and January 1905, and the last entry is a listing of members in 1964. The review of Mt. Zion Church's records and inventory of the adjacent Cemetery was made in 1983 by Loyd O'Neal Addy, Sr. (Gr-Grandson of James S. & Lizzie Carter and Lemuel & Dora McCann).   Many gravesites do not have headstones. Information about those buried in unmarked graves or locations was obtained from relatives or other sources.
