Tyler in Smith County, Texas — The American South (West South Central)
Land surrounding this site was purchased by T.J. Shamburger and his wife, Settie, in 1874. The next year, this family graveyard was created upon the death of their two-month-old daughter, Nettie. In later years other Shamburger family members were interred here, including Mathew and Julia; T.J. and Settie; and a number of children, grandchildren, and in-laws. The last of T.J. and Settie's children to be buried in the family plot was a son, William Martin, in 1967.
Among the graves here are three unmarked burials. The Shamburger Cemetery serves as a reminder of a pioneer East Texas family and their contributions to Smith County's agricultural development.
