Picture from 2004 is above, and one taken in 2014 is below.

Green Elm Cemetery is on the eastern edge of Jack County. It is close to Green Elm Bridge (where the West Fork of the Trinity River comes into the northwest end of Lake Bridgeport).
From Wise County take FmRd 1810 out of Chico toward the west for about 8 miles. Turn south on County Line Road (there’s a cemetery sign). Go 3.6 miles and turn right on Long Road. Go 0.3 miles and turn at the first right. In 0.5 miles you will come to the Dynegy station on the left. Take the left fork of a “Y” and the cemetery is straight ahead 0.3 miles.

She writes, "Green Elm Cemetery was first known as Verner Cemetery, then called Elm Wood Cemetery, and later named Green Elm. The cemetery was surveyed and belonged to my 2nd great grandfather, Harvey B. Verner. When his 3rd wife, Martha D. Verner, died in January 1877 she was the first person buried in the cemetery. Harvey B. Verner is also buried in the cemetery but has no marker. He was born about 1821 in Alabama and died 08 May 1893 at his home in Wizard Wells, Jack Co, TX."
