1. Corinth Cemetery Marker

In 1880, North Carolina native Dr. William Wallace McNeill and his wife, Elizabeth Ann (Bell), deeded land to the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, for a church, school and cemetery. The burial ground is the last remaining historic trace of the Corinth community. There are an unknown number of unmarked graves representing the cemetery’s earliest burials in the late 1800s. The oldest grave is of Confederate Soldier F.J. Simpson, who died in 1899. Artist Ethel Lewallen, who was twice appointed Texas State Artist of the Year, died in 1988 and is buried here. The Corinth Cemetery Association formed in 2003 to preserve and care for this sacred place.
