This cemetery is moderately endangered. It is a map feature, but it is located in a remote area on private property. It is fully fenced, and selected sections are regularly maintained. There are no cemetery signs posted. Cemetery features include:   ceramic photographs, grave slabs, formal granite and marble markers, locally cast and homemade concrete markers, metal funeral markers, and wooden markers. One burial plot that contains two graves is enclosed by an ornamental cast iron fence. Some older grave markers are fallen, leaning, or missing. An decorative arch with the name "Saenz" has been erected over three graves near the cemetery entrance. These graves are well maintained and visited frequently.  - Directions from the Starr County TXGenWeb site
