A recent visit to Patton/Yates cemetery saddened me so much that I must explain the condition of it. For more information, follow this link: http://www.rootsweb.com/~txgalves/pattoncem.htmhttp://www.rootsweb.com/~txgalves/pattoncem.htm Copy and paste it into your browser.
This cemetery is located about 12 miles from the ferry landing. When you see a waterslide, turn left on to Bob Road. Go about 100 yeards and on the left you will see a grassy driveway over a culvert. There is are two storage buildings and look straight ahead and you will see a slightly wooded area with weeds. The grass has been mowed from the street up to this small wooded area. There is one visible partial headstone. I am sorry to report that this very small cemetery has been vandalized and used for a dumping ground. There are about 6 or 7 graves here.
I am looking for anyone who may be related to any of the persons buried here so I can get volunteers to help me get permission from the landowner or community of Crystal Beach so a group of concerned citizens can clean up and restore this historical cemetery. Perhaps we can collect funds to replace the headstones or at least fence the cemetery and purchase a plaque with the names and birth/death dates of the persons buried here.
