EDGEFIELD CEMETERY

One of the few all-black cemeteries in Van Zandt County, is located in the City of Edgewood in what is now a housing development. This is an active cemetery, although many of the older graves have been lost or destroyed by expansion in the community. A former Edgewood Chief of Police, Joe Willie Milton (1941-1997) is buried here along with his family. Mr. Milton is believed to be the first black police officer in Van Zandt County. Several of the marked graves include veterans of WWII. Surnames included in this cemetery are, Scott, Turner, Milton, Maroney, Henson, Mills, Wilson, Daniel, Randle, Lewis, Edmun, Wiley, Williams, and Campbell.
