Davidson Cemetery ( 1862 ) - Mingus, Texas

The Davidson Cemetary located east of Strawn on the old Johnson mine spur, is one of the largest and most picturesque family cemetaries in Texas. Davidson started the cemetary in July 1864. It was on Davidson’s original farm and ranchland that a man by the name of James Reed was killed by the Indians. James Reed’s decendents placed a permanent marker on his grave in 1989. The land was donated in 1862 by the Stuart and Strawn families who were early settlers of the area and friends of the Davidsonsons. The area was originally a trading post or fort called Davidson’s Fort. It was used as a hospitality center where travelers and prospectors were welcomed and entertained.
