Hope Cemetery
Wood County,
Texas

Hope Cemetery
This Small Forgotten Cemetery Shows Its
Earliest Burial As That Of R L Thompson,
A Young Man Of 27, In 1912. A Large Woodmen
Of The World Marker Marks His Grave. Only
Nine Graves Are Marked But Today There Is A
Sign On The Fence Which Lists All Known Burial
Sites. Local History Reports That There Was A
Baptist Church On the Site Of The Cemetery In
The Early 1900s. About 1930 Due To A Long Forgotten
Disagreement Among Some Of The Members, A Group
Left The Church And Late INn 1934 Were Part OF The
Group Who Formed Rose Hill Baptist Church. Today
There Is No Evidence Of A Church Building. One
Confederate Soldier, James P Thompson, (Company
E13 Alabama Infantry) Is Buried Here. It Has Been
Reported That Mr Thomson Was A Baptist Minister.
