LOCKETT CEMETERY

Royal and Martha (Smith) Lockett came to Texas from Georgia between 1856 and 1858 with their eleven surviving children and the families slaves. Seven of their eight living sons served in the Confederate Army. The earliest marked grave on this site is that of Walter R. McGarity (1853-1862), Son of James H. and Marie Antoinette (Lockett) McGarity and a grandson of Royal and Martha Lockett descendants are interred here. According to the family oral history a union soldier who died on the Lockett Plantation also is buried in the graveyard. Of the more than 45 interred here by 1999, two were veterans of the Confederate Army and three were veterans of World War II. The Lockett Cemetery continues as a chronicle of Marion County History.
