Carroll Creek Cemetery is in the central part of Jack County. It's to the southeast of Jacksboro out in a pasture. Go south out of Jacksboro on Hwy 199 and take Hwy 380 toward Bridgeport.  In about 4 miles, just past the Coca Cola Ranch Road, you'll see the sign to the cemetery. The pasture gate to the cemetery is on the left (north side of the road) and was unlocked the several times that I checked. Go through the gate pictured above and take a hard right onto an old paved road that is parallel to the highway. I think this was the old 1156 that went to Wizard Wells. 

Follow this old paved road down to the bridge that crosses Carroll Creek. Up the next hill you will see a wheat field on the right that is between this old road and Hwy 380.


At the end of this field you'll see a pen and small barn. Just beyond this barn turn left (north) on a pasture road.

Follow this pasture road for about a half mile and look for a 'Y' to the left. Take this left fork and you will see the cemetery fence straight ahead down a hill.

In March 2013 the cemetery was well fenced, but had lots of brush and 'down' cedar trees. We started to the left of the gate and worked our way right, and to the back of the area that was about an acre with ditches on 3 sides. We found 21 of the 24 headstones that were listed in Paul Smith's data. Most headstones were broken and off their bases. We took a shovel with us, and dug out a couple that were buried in the dirt and grass.


The small fenced area had a tall headstone for F.M. Frie. Beside that stone was a funeral home marker that was rusted, but we think it may have been for his son because his name was in the older data. The picture above right is a Confederate Army marker that we dug out of the dirt. It is for Edward C. Manning of the Missouri Cavalry (there's a larger picture in the table below)
At one time there was a school in this area Click here for a picture of that page from the 'History of Jack County' book.
