Paint Creek Cemetery
Coke County, Texas

 

Paint Creek Cemetery is located 8 miles west of Robert Lee, Texas on Hwy 158.

Historical Marker: Edith, Settled by cattlemen who ran herds on open range, and stock-farming homesteaders. Development began in early 1880s after Winfield Scott, rancher, fenced his spread. Area had three schools, lodge hall, tabernacle, general store, cotton gin and blacksmith shop. The post office, established in 1890, was named for Edith Bonsall, an admired young lady of Ballinger. It closed in 1955. Dwindling schools combined, then consolidated with those of nearby Robert Lee. As trend toward urban living increased, Edith declined. (1969)
