   Asbury is a remote, country cemetery located west of Tolar,
Texas, in Hood County. It is very well cared for and enclosed
by a chainlink fence. There was no evidence of vandalism.

   The earliest marked grave has a date of 1864 as well as
MURDERED engraved upon it. There are many unmarked graves that
could possibly date back to this early time as well. Community
members have laid small, concrete squares to indicate the identity
of many graves. These bear the name or indicate who the person
may be who is buried there. There are no dates on these markers.

   Although this cemetery has so many burials in the early
days of the area, there are also current graves as well.

   To drive to this cemetery from Granbury, travel on Hwy. #777
to Tolar. At the second caution light, continue west for 1.7
miles. A green cemetery sign on the north side of the highway
should indicate a right turn onto CR #106. Drive .5 mile to
CR #105 on the right. The cemetery is in the corner where the
two county roads meet.

   I completed this survey in early October, 1990.
