Wizard Wells Cemetery is in the east part of Jack County. It's west of Lake Bridgeport. From Runaway Bay go west on Hwy 380 for 7.5 miles. Turn right on Fm Rd 1156 and go about 2 miles to the town of Wizard Wells. Turn right on Green Elm Road and go north of town for about 2 miles. Stay on the right fork of the road. The cemetery will be on the right side of the road.

  

There's a drive and a small gate on the north side of the cemetery. (See pictures above)

In the town of Wizard Wells there's a well and Historical Marker. (See picture above and text of marker below)

Wizard Wells

The Kiowa Indians first visited this location and used the mineral waters for medicinal purposes. George Washington Vineyard settled here in the 1870s taking up a claim originally established by David Rowland. Vineyard dug this well for his home but the mineral-tasting water was not used. He suffered from sore eyes and from ulcers on his legs but was cured by bathing in and drinking the water. The news spread and visitors suffering from arthritis, rheumatism, stomach disorders, and skin diseases began coming to the well.

Those seeking treatments often camped along Beanís Creek in their wagons. Soon three hotels and several bath houses opened to serve the increased visitor population. The town of Vineyard was laid out in 1882 and J.H. Grisham opened the first general store. The town later included several churches, a newspaper, school, sawmill, blacksmith shop, and post office.

In 1898 the Rock Island Railroad bypassed Vineyard and Sebree Community was started (2 mi. S). Visitors arriving by train took a hack to the resort. H.F. Stamper and his sons, Clint and H.F., Jr. petitioned the legislature in 1915 and the name of Vineyard became Wizard Well. Sebree was changed to Vineyard. (1980)

Below are several pictures that Royce Raven rrrcubic@rrraven.com had in his collection of 'Old Wizard Wells'. 
He said that 'The Wizard' was there in the 1940's but gone by the 1950's.

Parts of the Bath House in the 2 following pictures are still there.

Above is Royce Raven's old picture of the Historical Marker in the town of Wizard Wells. 
See the newer picture of that marker near the top of this page.

Layout Order and Map of Wizard Wells Cemetery

 There was a roadway through the center of the cemetery. We used that road as divider between our Sections 1 and 2. (See picture above and map below)

Headstone photos were taken by Sue Tackel & LaDarla Keith in August 2004. 260 headstones were found at that time. The cemetery was divided by the road into 2 Sections. Headstones were photographed and numbered in Rows as shown in the map above.
