The Tomerlin Historic sign reads:
Tomerlin Cemetery
Washington Allen Tomerlin set aside this burial ground for his family and
neighbors in what was at that time an isolated area of Medina County.  The
earliest dated gravestone is that of Martha Ivy Essary (1856-1875) But many
old stones have initials and no dates.  Among those buried here are veterans
of the Civil War, World War I, World War II, and Vietnam, as well as three
Littleton brothers said to have been Texas Rangers.  The southwest corner of
this 1.39 acres holds the Brackens family, freed slaves who settled nearby.
This cemetery remains a chronicle of Medina County Pioneers and Their
