In Reply to: FOUND: Scofield Cemetery in a Texas Cornfield by Suzy Underwood of 967

The cemetery that that you found is a family cemetary of my Hill County ancestors, but I have never been able to find its location. Near there just to the east of the highway is a large house with a historical marker. This was the site of John Samuel Scofield's original homestead when he moved to Hill County in about 1850. He was my great-great grandfather. He and many other family members are buried in the old Hill Cemetery in town. His wife was MAry Rebecca, nee Houston. So, the Houstons there are likely her realtives. My grandfather, John Samuel's grandson, was James Arthur Scofield - named after the James Arthur Parker, but I am afraid that I do not know how the Parker's are related to the Scofields. Thanks for the information. I am about 300 miles from Hill County but will be visiting my daughter in College Station in January. So, if the weather is nice, I will try to clean the place up a little.
