Near Brownsboro in Henderson County, Texas — The American South (West South Central)
Rock Hill Cemetery
In 1900, one of Alexander Clayton's sons, Rufus, sold property he inherited, including two acres set aside for burials, to his brother Columbus, formally establishing the cemetery. Rufus and Columbus were farmers and school district trustees. Others buried here include farmers, early area settlers, community leaders and veterans of military conflicts.
Features in the cemetery include curbing, an enclosed wall of sandstone surrounding a grave, vertical stones and Woodmen of the World markers. Through the years, need for additional land arose; various individuals graciously contributed property to the cemetery in 1979 and 1984. In 1982, relatives of those interred here established the Rock Hill Cemetery Association
Erected 2006 by Texas Historical Commission. (Marker Number 14885.)
