LACEY FAMILY CEMETERY Dallas 75211. This cemetery is indicated to be located on the Trinity Portland Cement grounds. NOTE: Location derived from Rita Barnes' Texas State Highway Map 112 42V, Dallas County, TX. If this family is white, why would they be buried in Trinity Portland Cemetery? This cemetery was reserved for the families of Mexican and Black workers who worked at the cement plant. Would the Lacys have been there first? (See the Source below for Jim Wheat's Dallas County Texas Archives about this Rootsweb post by Rita Barnes)

Answers below are from T. E. Lacey, Lacey Family researcher and great great great grandson of Philemon D Lacey and Sarah C (Inman) Lacey, to the above questions from Rita Barnes.

1) Yes, they were a white farming family who owned this parcel of land previously.

2) yes, they were there first, from 1854 to 1909.

3) This small Lacey Family Cemetery was likely taken over by the workers and families of the Trinity Portland Cement Company as a burial location. Trinity Portland Cement Company donated this parcel of land as a burial location for the workers due to the outbreak of Influenza in 1918. No trace of this Lacey family exists there today. It is likely that the Lacey family members burial markers were of a primitive form and that the markers were moved, removed or repurposed.

The historical marker placed at this location by the Dallas County Texas Pioneer Association mentions nothing about the previous owners of this land from 1854 to 1909.

See the Philemon Daniel Lacey profile for land deeds and land abstract records.

Philemon Lacey preemted this land in 1854 and the land deed was finalized in 1856. After Philemon's death, his son David Alexander Lacey continued running the farm and ranch. After his death in 1906, David's son Albert Napoleon Bonaparte Lacey sold this land to Southwestern State Portland Cement Company in 1909. Southwestern sold this same piece of land to Trinity Portland Cement Company in 1915.
