On Pine Grove Rd (CR 2455) about 5 miles N of Old Simpsonville, at the intersection of CR 3412, 10 miles SW of Pittsburg. **According to Camp County Story, it was Henderson Burying Ground first....then Yallo Busha. Jim Keel is the person that named the community Yallo Busha after a place in his native Alabama. Then later the Lain family (per 1970 story) had 5 sets of grandparents buried there, which would account for that name. It was located on Lilly Creek Bottom. In 1909 Hopewell Baptist Church was built in the same area and the community & cemetery soon adopted that name. Yallo Busha / Yellow Bush Cemetery or The Henderson Burying Ground. Taken from the following website: http://txgenwebcounties.org/camp/cemeteries/YalloBushaCem.html This land was owned by the Henderson family from the earliest day.....But it is said that Henderson's, Mr A D Bass' grandparents, John Smith's ancestors, at least three generations of Lain's, Duffy's Harris, and many more families of this area are possibly buried in this cemetery. Yallo Busha is an Indian name meaning "beautiful stream". The cemetery is located in Camp County about 1/4 miles north of the Upshur - Camp County line. It is on the north side of FM 2455 1.8 miles west of the FM 2455 and FM 556 intersection. The cemetery is fenced and well maintained. Diana Ware tells us: There were many families who came from Yalobusha, MS (Yalobusha County gets its name from the Yalobusha River, whose name means place of the tadpoles) to Texas especially, Upshur and Titus counties. My 2nd great-grandmother, Julia Ann Branum Broadstreet came to Upshur in the early 1870s after the death of her husband. Her brother Thomas P. Branum had moved from Yalobusha Co., to Little Rock, AR, then to Upshur Co. by 1870. He is listed in the census as T. P. Brown. They lived in an area near the border with Franklin Co. that became part of Camp Co., then in the late 1870s they bought land just the other side of "Brushy Creek" on the Franklin Co. side near an area that became known as "Branum's Crossing." This part of the creek is now part of Bob Sandlin Lake and there is still a bridge near where the crossing was. I can't remember the road number but you can cross from Franklin Co. to Camp Co. and vice versa there. I didn't know if you knew about Yalobusha, Mississippi and just wanted to give you a little history about it. Yes, they did have lots of problems with yellow fever, but the Indian word Yalobusha does not have anything to do with the fever as some believe. For Yalowbusha, MS information, see the Yalobusha County MSGenWeb site. As hard as we all try, we are human and sometimes when reading a cemetery we miss a grave covered with leaves, fireants, or bushes. Sometimes the headstone has sunk and is mostly underground. Our area also has many graves only marked with iron ore rocks and even many unmarked graves. There are headstones that have long ago been destroyed by the elements or even vandalizm, and are hard to impossible to read the details. We would appreciate it if you would let us know if you did not find your relative which was buried here, and would appreciate your letting us use the information you know about them. With the combined efforts of us all, we can make the Upshur County website bigger and better.
