Directions to cemetery
"The Anderson Cemetery, Rock House Community, Williamson County, Texas, is a neglected cemetery located on the north bank of the North San Gabriel River, about a quarter-mile from a country road. It is five miles northeast of Liberty Hill and about 1 1/2 miles northeast of the intersection of U.S. Highway 183 and Farm Road 1869, the first country road north on 183. All the legible markers were copied (including several that had fallen) on April 28, 1969."

Earlier my wife and I either mailed or e-mailed you some information concerning updates to the Anderson Cemetery (Rock House).
During one of our visit to the cemetery, we were clearing the cemetery of brush, weeds, and high clover, we discovered some graves that we not previously marked and some added information on some marked graves.
#5113 Carter, N.A., daughter of Lazarus Wood, name was Nancy and her first husband was George M. Carter. Second husband was Jarman Carter.
#5117 Dycus. T.L. There seems to be a mistake here. Toliver Dycus later married Sara Catherine Smith and he is buried with second wife in Liberty Hill Cemetery. His first wife was Biddy Caroline Wood.
#5127 Mrs. T.L. Dycus (Biddy Caroline) first husband was T.L. Dycus and is the daughter of Lazarus Wood. She was born December 22, 1843 and died September 27, 1876.
Three other graves that have markers but are not listed on your master list:
Luther Scott b. May 3, 1885 d. May 4, 1885 infant son of O.J.& B.C.
Scott Henry Owen b. January 21, 1896 d. October 26, 1918 WW 1 Pvt U.S. Army
James E. Owen b. May 21, 1865 d. February 11, 1917
Hope this information helps.
Have Happy New Year.
