LOCATION: Baughman Cemetery is located in the southwest quadrant of the county near Roxton in Block 53 of the Lamar County Road Map produced by American Drafting and Services revised December 1993. It was believed that Baughman Cemetery and Griffin Cemetery were the same, but they are about a mile apart. DIRECTIONS: Directions as provided by Lawrence and Sue Dale: In Roxton, at the intersection of FM 137 and FM 38, take FM 38 southwesterly for 7/10 miles to the intersection with CR 25300. Take CR 25300 east for 3/10 miles to the intersection with CR 25200. Take CR 25200 south and then west for 2.4 miles to a pasture gate on the left. Go through the gate and the cemetery is 2/10 miles to the west in an old grove of cedar trees most of which now are fallen. The land was known as the Doyle Childers farm and is still in the possession of a son, James Childers. GPS COORDINATES: 33° 30' 05 N, 95° 43' 48 W.
