Texas Historic Commission Marker
DGS volunteers inventoried this cemetery in March 1992. Markers from previous surveys that were no longer in evidence in 1992 are noted. Sources consulted for the integrated survey are Old Cemeteries of Dallas County by Willie Flowers Carlisle, 1948; typescript by W. R. Conger, teacher at Sunset High School and students of his Civics Class, 1961; and typescript by Barney C. Jones (Horton Family descendant), 1985, referred to as Carlisle, Conger or Jones.
The burials published by the Dallas Genealogical Society in Dallas County, Texas; Genealogical Data from Early Cemeteries, Volume V have been updated through a cross-check of death certificates and of death notices in the Dallas Morning News. Adjacent to Horton Family Cemetery is the Horton slave cemetery, more recently called the Mount Olive Cemetery. This area plus additional land was to have become the Crestview Memorial Park. That project did not come to fruition.
