Bear Creek Cemetery, Euless
About Bear Creek Cemetery, Euless
This cemetery is the final resting place for many early Tarrant County pioneers, several of which were Peters Colonists and Confederate soldiers. In 1853, as Major Ripley Arnold was vacating the camp known as Fort Worth, a small group of settlers formed a church located near Bear Creek, the present location of the cemetery. Isham Crowley donated the four acres of land for the church and cemetery.
The church moved in 1887, abandoning the cemetery. Mr. Morris Taylor, Mr. Lee Borah III, and Mrs. Mary Lou Herndon organized volunteers and filed with the State of Texas, which placed the cemetery into a Charitable Trust. Bear Creek Cemetery is now officially a 501-C13 and overseen by a Board of Directors. It is not a perpetual care cemetery, but is indeed a very well cared for cemetery thanks to the great membership and dedicated volunteers.
