St. John's Cemetery in Pilot Point, TX was established in the 1880s as a burial ground for African Heritage Americans living in the Denton County, TX area. The cemetery grounds were being maintained from 1882 until the late 1930s. Members that attended church at what used to be St. John's Baptist Church were laid to rest there.

FYI: Profiles of interred persons have the category: [[Category:Old Slave Cemetery, Denton County, Texas]]

Denton County currently holds title to the cemetery, which lies between three different plots of privately owned land and is only accessible through private rights of way.

Descendants of the following African-American/Black Heritage persons interred there will require permission for access to visit.
