COLEMAN CEMETERY, San Augustine County, Texas. Recorded March 22, 2006, pictures were taken June 6, 2011.     This is an old cemetery, with graves of some early settlers in East Texas.  There are many unmarked and unreadable graves, including the grave of our great-great grandmother, Almedia Amanda (Hopson) Stringer, whom we are sure is buried
here.
DIRECTIONS:  From Broaddus, go east (from Pineland go west) on FM83 to FM705; go
south on 705 about 6.5 miles to FM3173 and turn right. Go about 5 miles until the
pavement ends; continue a very short distance on the dirt road to the cemetery.
