Bosley Cemetery
Palo Pinto Co., TX

Submitted by
Jim Sublett

This work was taken from the book "A Short History of the Patilo Community of Erath County, Texas" volume 2, written and compiled by Charles McCleskey published in 1970. Copies of both volumes may be found at the Tarleton College in Stephenville, TX

The Bosley cemetery is located just south of U.S. Highway 80 (Interstate 20), a few miles east of the Santo-to-Patilo road crossover. This cemetery contains nearly 250 graves with inscriptions, and at least 84 graves without any identification.

Only the year is given in the cemetery record of dates; the month and day are omitted. The alphabetical arrangement is used to facilitate the finding of names, but it is based on the first letter of the surname only. Where inscriptions bear information of family relationships, the material is included in our listing. If the inscription fails to mention relationship, but that information is known, we have put it in the record, but in parentheses. We are indebted particularly to Elva White and Mr. and Mrs. Artra Edwards for their assistance in pointing out relationships in the Bosley cemetery record. This record includes burials through 1969.
