This cemetery (aka the Joe Brown Cemetery, Brown Cemetery, and/or Hirt-Braun Cemetery) is
located in the southwest quadrant of Milam Co. To get to this inactive cemetery from
Rockdale, take US Hwy 79 west towards Thorndale about 5.5-miles to CR 306 L and turn
right. Go about 2-miles, passing the sign for Hickory Grove Cemetery and Garza Cemetery
and about one-quarter mile a home and building will come into view. There is a gate just
prior to those buildings, turn right and drive to cemetery.
