Faubian Cemetery, Lamar County, Texas
LOCATION: Faubian Cemetery no longer exists. It was in the northeast quadrant of the county in Block 32 of the Lamar County Road Map produced by American Drafting and Services revised December 1993.
DIRECTIONS: The cemetery was located north of North Lamar High School off Stillhouse Road. It is about 75 yards due west of the intersection of County Road 41100 and 42200. It was once believed there were three tombstones stacked behind a barn on the property but in 1999 they had disappeared.
GPS COORDINATES: Not available
OLDEST KNOWN BURIAL: The oldest inscribed grave is that of Alexander L. Cox who died 10 Nov 1887.
NUMBER OF GRAVES: There was evidence of 23 graves in the cemetery. Using death certificates and other resources, there are now 40 records of burials. (July 2017)
SIGNS/MARKERS: There is not a sign for the cemetery.
LAST ENUMERATION: Richard Duncan located some of and took pictures of them.
ADD'L INFORMATION: Faubian Cemetery no longer exists due to the plow and tractor and progress of the modern farm. The records were provided by Elizabeth Booth. She was able to record 18 graves through letters, telephone calls and death certificates. Later research in 1993 from the Rodgers and Wade Furniture Company Funeral records reveal this was once called Forbin Cemetery. Some of the names that Mrs. Booth had were recorded in Rodgers and Wade as buried in Forbin Cemetery. In May of 1999 Johnnie Lee, of Detroit, TX walked the area at the top of a small hill at the intersection of the county roads and found evidence of 23 graves using the dowsing method. He found no remaining evidence of markers. In 1996 the land in which the cemetery is located is owned by Keith and Janet Green, Paris, TX. They stated to Richard Duncan that they planned to move the markers to an area where they will be accessible from the road. In 2017, this has still not happened.
