Bell's Chapel Cemetery
Bell Chapel Rd. off FM 813, Rockett Community, TX, USA
Chartered in 1876, the Red Oak Masonic Lodge No. 461, held their early meetings in a 2-story chapel and hall they helped build on land donated to the Methodist Episcopal Church South on Dec. 27, 1875, by local landowners John and Elizabeth Gibbons. The church and cemetery were named in honor of confederate war veteran Jodie M. Bell, a church and civic leader in the Rockett Community, and first person to be buried in the cemetery in 1877. The lodge moved to Red Oak in 1894.
