History, memories surround Ft. Parker Memorial Park

Located just west of Groesbeck, in Limestone County, this historic cemetery originated while Freestone County was still part of Limestone. I have deep roots here where many of my mother’s family and ancestors are buried. A large, impressive monument remembering the Indian massacre and its victims is located on a circle drive in the middle of the well-kept grounds to greet you. 
If you haven’t visited this historic place it's well worth a trip to see. This is the resting place of early settlers and many Limestone County officials, including my friends Judge Fountain Kirby and Judge Norton Fox, and many former sheriffs, including my mother’s great-grandfather Anthony Sharp who served as confederate sheriff.
