Ben Royal Cemetery


From the intersection of Hwy 11 and 49 east of Hughes Springs, go east toward Avinger for 1.4 miles.  A faint road to the left not accessible by automobile leads into the woods on Royal land for about a half mile.  This cemetery is fenced. There is one row of graves and probably other unmarked graves. 

Map location (above) approximate.


Started in 1916 and contains the graves of ten members of the Ben Royal family.
