Los Creek Cemetery is in the central part of Jack County. It's just to the east of Jacksboro in the J.D. Craft pasture. Go east out of Jacksboro on Hwy 59 past Lake Jacksboro. The pasture gate to the cemetery is on the right, south side of the road, just before you go under a large power line that goes into the Jack switch station. On the OTHER side of Hwy 59, the sign over the gate says 'Martin'. Go through the gate pictured above and follow the pasture road for one half mile (stay to the right). The cemetery is easily seen on top of a hill.
Just inside the cemetery
gate is a Memorial Marker honoring the Civil War Veterans buried in this
Pictures of the front and back of the marker are above.
Headstone photos were taken here in February 2013. 91 headstones were found. Headstone pictures were taken in 7 rows.
Row 1 started inside the gate to the left and went to the right. The other rows followed also going from left to right.
The 'layout' order follows, and complete information is in the table below:

sent a link to the story of the Nocona Raid at Los Creek in Nov 1860, and he
writes: I've been researching this
story a bit myself because of the direct relation to my family, and also because
the raid eventually ended with the recapture of Cynthia Ann Parker, whose story
is fairly well known. It's always exciting to find interesting stories
when doing genealogy! This
page is a good summary of information about the raid; all three of the
individuals we discussed are mentioned in the "Gage Family" section.
These 3 were killed at the Gage home, but several others were wounded.
"At the James Landman home a teenage girl, Jane Masterson, was roped and drug to the Calvin Gage home about 3/4 of a mile away. When the Indians arrived at the frontier home of Calvin Gage, who was away, they shot and killed Jane Masterson""The Indians brutally slaughtered, Mrs. Calvin Gage's mother-in-law, Mrs. Katy Sanders.""the Indians tossed one of the babies of Mrs. Gage high up in the air"
