Troup City Cemetery
Troup, TX
SE-07
Latitude:  N  32:08:51.0
Longitude:  W 095:07:14.2
Located at the corner of McKay and Georgia Streets inside the city of Troup, Smith County, Texas. The cemetery sits behind the high school in the city of Troup.

Dedicated in 1873, this cemetery is on land reserved by the Railroad for this purpose when the town was being planned. It is said that perhaps in some cases there might be more than one person in the same place, as graves used to be dug deeper than they are now, and rocks or markers might have been moved or disappeared over the years.

Universe Cemetery
Headache Springs Area, Tyler, TX
SE-09
Latitude:  N  32:20:08.4
Longitude:  W 095:14:47.9
This cemetery is inside the City of Tyler, Texas. Take Highway 64 East from Downtown Tyler to CR274 (Nottingham Lane) and turn left (North). Travel about 1/2 mile to the 9100 block of the street. There is a 4-unit Brick Apartment building (west side of street) - behind the parking lot of this apartment building is the cemetery. The fence and the northernmost gate to the cemetery is visible through this parking lot. If permission to cross the parking lot is denied (not likely to happen), then travel north an additional 100 yards on CR274 to the entrance of Headache Springs Park. From the parking at this park entrance, go into the woods to the west behind the property lines and travel back down about 100 yards to the northern fence of the cemetery - you can access the cemetery by either going around the west end of the fence or going to the northeast corner and enter the gate at the back of the apartment parking lot.

This cemetery is about 3 acres in size and is fenced on the north and east sides with a 4 foot high chain-link fence. It does not appear to be maintained. There are 4 family plots inside the cemetery which are separately fenced. Only one of these separate plots appears to be maintained and it contains the most recent burial from March, 2001. The earliest burial is from 1871.
