Dallas Co, Texas

Garvin Cm., Northwest Hwy. west of Midway Rd, Dallas, Mapsco 24W
Charles Elliott Rainwater, 10 Sep 1920 - 13 Jun 1921, AA, unmarked [1503]
Note: I am dubious about this location. Garvin is a private family cemetery with Confederate ties, considerably distant from where the family lived. Charles’ death certificate says Garvin Cemetery, Letot, but Garvin wasn’t in the town of Letot. I strongly suspect he is buried in Old Letot Cemetery, near to where the family lived.

Hilltop Cm., Perry Rd, Carrollton, Mapsco 2Z

White Rock Garden of Memories, Cedar Canyon Rd (formerly Celestial Dr), Dallas, Mapsco 15F
One of Dallas’s oldest African American cemeteries, White Rock Garden of Memories has gone by several names including Smith, Alpha (for its proximity to Alpha Road), and White Rock Union. It was nearly destroyed in the 1980s by unscrupulous developers. [1744]

Bonnie Rose Rainwater, AA, 18 Jun 1940 - 8 Mar 1943 [1800]
Responsibility for this abandoned cemetery was assumed by the City of Dallas in the 1970s, when the property was renamed Nelson Park. The Dallas Mapsco shows the cemetery separate from the park, naming it Woodland. Additional background on this cemetery can be found in this Dallas Morning News article.

Denton Co, Texas

Craft Colored Cm., Lewisville
This cemetery was apparently not among those moved by the Corps. of Engineers, and consequently is believed to be under Lake Lewisville.

Sunnyside Cm. #4, south of Hempstead and west of Houston
Ad Rainwater, AA, Mar 1887 - 7 Jul 1920 [1357]
Based on the information in Findagrave.com, there are multiple cemeteries in the area once known as Sunnyside, any of which could be this one. All are exceedingly hidden, on rural private property.
