Walkers Creek Cemetery
Silver City (Walkers Creek), TX
Erected 2005
The Walkers Creek community was named for W.H.
Walker, who moved to the area in the 1830s.
Tennessee native Richard W. Cage settled in the
area with his wife Mattie and their family, and in
June 1884, the Cage family donated land for the
Walkers Creek Cemetery, Baptist Church and School.
The burial ground was in use by 1880, when Mattie
Lee Jinks was interred here. The church, which
organized in 1882, disbanded in the 20th century.
An association cares for the still active
cemetery, which remains a tie to the generations
of settlers who contributed to Walkers Creek
history.

I am trying to find out who is in charge of the Walkers Creek Cemetery Association.  My
sister, brother and I live in the Houston area but all of our relatives are buried at
Walkers Creek and we have plots there too.

We would like to be placed on the mailing list for the association so that we can send
our contributions to help keep up the cemetery.

I would appreciate it if you could help us by sending a reply to this e-mail with the
person's name in charge and their address or e-mail so that we may get in touch with
them.

Thank you very much.
