Old City Greenwood Cemetery, Weatherford
About Old City Greenwood Cemetery, Weatherford
Due to the age of City Greenwood Cemetery, and the Parker County Courthouse fires that occurred in the past, few records exist. Official ownership of the cemetery is undeterminable.
Due to vandalism that occurred at the cemetery in the 1990s, the Parker County Heritage Society worked alongside the city and the community to erect a wrought iron fence around the cemetery, and to upright, repair, replace, and restore damaged or defaced headstones.
In 1999, members of the Parker County Heritage Society prepared an index of burial information for all of the headstones that were in place and legible after their dedicated restoration work. This book is the only record currently held by the city for the cemetery. The City Secretary assists in searching this document upon request. The City Secretary may answer questions for the public; however, please keep in mind that data is very limited.
