Indian Creek Cemetery

Comanche County, Texas

The Indian Creek Methodist Church was established in 1880 with the first burial ocurring that same year. The Indian Creek Church and Cemetery Association was created on November 5th, 1981. The original Board of Directors were: L B Bowman, Aubrey Jones, Brady York, Bonnie Biggs, Rena Burdette, Gale York, and Lloyd Coker. The Board of Directors elected the following officers: President - L.B. Bowman; Vice-President - Aubrey Jones; Secretary/Treasurer - Gail York.

The annual meeting, as set in the Organizations By-Laws, is held the first Sunday in June. While the Indian Creek Methodist Church and Tabernacle were still standing, as many as 200 would attend. Along with a business meeting, a fellowship service and a "homecoming" gathering would take place with old and new friendships immerging. Food was provided by those attending and ranged from meat of all kinds to vegetable dishes to deserts. No one left hungry. A tour of the cemetery would occurr at sometime to educate the younger generations of their ancestors and stories to remember them by.

Today, we are fortunate to have thirty people attend the business meeting. It is my sincere hope that those who vist this site will be enlightened to start caring and either donate or join us at our next annual meeting. The care of our ancestors rests with us.
