Karla Lang, Special Collections Librarian, a distant cousin, and a friend went to Kyle Cemetery iin the early 1990s and photographed 89 burial sites that included some headstones, but mostly depressions in the ground where headstones had been located, but are now mostly gone. The cemetery is on oil and gas lease property and is not available to the general public. Karla explained that they walked for over a mile through rough land to get to the cemetery. The cemetery location is very overgrown with brush and fallen trees. I do not believe that it was ever fenced and cows have possibly trod over it.
This is the present gate to the oil and gas lease property where Kyle Cemetery is located.
Lanny Medlin, a professional Texas photographer and historian, shared pictures with me last summer through Karla Lang that appear at the www.findagrave.com Kyle Cemetery, Anderson County, Texas website.
