Mansfield Cemetery
Tarrant County,
Texas

CUMBERLAND PRESBYTERIAN CEMETER
This site was first used as a burial ground shortly after the Civil War. The earliest legible gravestone is that of Julia Alice (Boisseau) Man (1843-68). Her husband Ralph S. Man and brother-in-law Julian Feild founded Mansfield (originally spelled Mansfeild). The burial site was deeded to the Mansfield congregation of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church in 1874. Graves include those of Civil War veterans and victims of the 1918-19 influenza epidemic. The oldest section in Mansfield Cemetery, the burial ground serves as a reminder of the area's earliest settlers. (1982)
