North of Barsola on TX Hwy 1911 I saw a sign for the Arnold Cemetery and I drove a short distance from the road to the cemetery. The Cemetery sign said that the cemetery was established in 1872. I walked through the cemetery and found most of the markers to be in the Arnold family. I suspect that the old unreadable sandstone markers were from the late 1800s. The Arnold Cemetery appears to be well maintained.
Note: I searched the internet and found no real information on any Arnold settlement. I could only find a site for the Arnold Cemetery with only the list of the people that rest there.
Commentary: I find it very bad that some second amendment fool would disrespect the dead by shooting the cemetery sign with a scattergun.
I had a good day in Southern Cherokee County and drove back on Texas hwy 21. In Douglass I made a stop at the Douglass Pavilion to see the Historic Markers. I found the Douglass Presideo interesting cuz the old Spanish and French land claims had a larger overlap causing friction between the two. The sign with the El Camino de los Tejas showed the
different routes from the Native Americans to travel across what now is Texas.
