Manire Tombstone

Debbie photographed the sign for the cemetery
as well as the headstone of
Charles O and Tempie Roberts Manire
at the Old Celina Cemetary in Celina, Collin Co, TX .

I hope I have copied correctly from photo of the sign.
The town of Celina settled by natives of Celina, Tennessee was founded near this site in __. The oldest grave here is that of a child who died in 1884. W. J. Bounds (1830-1886) donated the land as a community cemetery after the death of Elizabeth McWhorter on Feb. 28, 1885. In 1900 residents of celina began to relocate their homes and businesses along the railroad (2.5)mi. NE). By 1910 only this burial ground remained at the original townsite. A cemetery association was formed in 1918. Several more acres were later added to the cemetery which has about 600 graves. (1976)

Thank you, Debbie, for sharing this with the rest of us!
