      "Milam Cemetery receives marker"

      The Texas Historic Cemetery Dedication Ceremony for Milam Cemetery took place on Saturday, October 11, following the annual Nethery reunion...local historian Weldon McDaniel....gave a presentation outlining some of the significant historical events that took place in Milam and the importance of preserving the history of Milam Cemetery. He said as many as 85 percent of all early settlers coming into Texas put their boots in red dirt. Although San Augustine and Nacogdoches counties have a friendly battle over which is older, Milam is just as old as either of them....

      Dorothy Nethery Spain had the honor of reading the script engraved on the marker:

      "Milam, the first County Seat of Sabine County, has a history of travelers and visitors stretching back centuries. Native Americans and Spanish exploreres, soldiers and missionaries passed through and often camped on Las Boregas Creek. Texian settlers encountering the natural abundance echoed the words of Stephen F. Austin, who recorded in his diary entry of July 16, 1821: "We then suddenly came to an open rolling country thinly timbered soil about the color of Spanish browne, and in some places redder. This Red Land is very productive and is covered with the most luxuriant growth of grass I ever beheld in any country."  The settlment first called Red Mound (Red Mount) was the seat of Government for the Sabine District since 1822, and was surveyed as a town site in 1828.

      Milam Cemetery is on a high hill overlooking the historic community. The exact dated of the first burial will never be known  Spanish Explorers were passing through present-day Milam as early as 1539 and camped on Las Boregas Creek a few hundred yards west of the cemetery. Local hisorians believed Anglo burials occurred here probably as early as 1775, since travelers used the campsite down the hill on the Las Boregas. The land on which the cemetery is located was granted to JOHN SMITH on Feb. 26, 1835. The first marked burial is dated 1864, although more than 100 unmarked graves are suspected. The numerous military Veterans dating back to the Creek War are interred here, as well as prominent early citizens from the CAUSEY, WEATHERRED. McGREW, and NETHERY families. Milam Cemetery may be the oldest organized cemetery in Sabine County, and cherished chronicle of generations of visitors and residents."

    • The June 13, 2006 issue of the Sabine County Reporter featured the "All Things Historical" column by Bob Bowman titled "Nethery's Store." The oldest continually operated business in Sabine County, Nethery's was begun by C. A. Nethery, who came to Milam from Patroon as a young man. He and is wife, Amanda built a home on Main street and later opened a general store and saloon. The first store was burned during a snowstorm in 1913, but a new store was quickly built. The "new" store is still standing. After his father's death in 1942, C.A. "Buddy" Nethery, Jr. operated the store until his death. His nephew's, Gene and Doule Nethery kept the store open until 2000, selling hardware and providing a place for local dominoe players to meet. It is currently operated by Ellen Melton, Laura Tichnell, and Susan Nethery as an antique store.
