Located on part of the original William Coombes survey, burials in this cemetery date to the 1850s. Originally known as Troth, it was formally dedicated in 1881, when land was set aside for a graveyard forever by Z. E. Coombes and W. R. Fisher.

Pioneers interred here include W. R. Fisher, Z. E. Coombes, John and Rosina Loupot, Mary Ellen Cole Tuggle, and Heinrich and Anna Struck.

Also buried here are veterans of the Civil War and World Wars I and II, and Clyde and Buck Barrow. Trinity Oaks Church of Christ maintains the historic cemetery.

Come join us Saturday morning from 9am-12pm in restoring the beauty of this historic Dallas landmark. 1617 Ft. Worth Ave, Dallas TX 75208.
