Back when I was in high school we used to drive out to Mont Belvieu to visit Sarah's Grave off 565. Now that I'm older and involved in a Genealogical Society, I'd like to do a little research to see if I can find any details on the grave. Has anyone been out there? Does anyone remember the Country Road you took off 565? Does anyone remember Sarah's last name on the headstone?

I have absolutely no interest in going out there (too old)- I'd just like to answer one of the biggest mysteries I had as a teenager...

Thanks!

I went out there once with a friend of mine and her brother, I can not remember the last name, but I will check with them and see if they remember the name or what road it was on...all I know is when we went out there it scared the living crap out of me.....

There was no tombstone about 6 years ago when I used to go to the grave, but havent been since! Wish I knew the legit story to it! I've heard many, but a Mt Belvieu cop tell me once that she died of malaria, but that's not as fun as the other stories you hear.

Her Last name is Wilburn and she died in 1875. age 15 after hanging herself in a tree. the dirt road is off loop 207 or you can take sun oil road by the enterprise plant also.

Definitely is a tomb stone unless it was stolen. My friends and I would visit circa 2000-2002, and there was a headstone and what looked like some old burned stables.

Malaria seems more likely, but the story I always heard was that she was burned alive by her father for being with a black boy.

One of my buddies actually laid in the grave (there's a slight hole from the casket rotting and ground settling).

The story is you lay on her grave & at midnight you can't move, like she's holding you down. There was a story that a teen girl laid on her grave & at midnight she tried to get up but couldn't cause her dress was hind on something & she has a heart attack cause she thought it was Sarah holding her down. My ex hubby told me that when I was in high school, he's from there.

Yes. I have been out there many times. For the thrill. I have seen to many things out there. From somebody walking across the road to an army of red eyed ghosts behind my car to black dogs with gold eyes (with NO light except for the moonlight). I have found the tree and down the rocky potholed road there's a dilapidated house. There is no headstone. The last time I went out there was around 2008. Probably went out there a total of 15 times from 2006 to 2008. It is one of the spots that they drill for oil so you do get 18 wheelers go thru there. Oddly enough they show up in the middle of the night. If you plan on going down there better take a truck or you'll be bottoming out. Here is exactly where it is. 29.845911,-94.883297 On the map, Sun Oil road doesn't go thru.... but it really does. If you are in the area check it out. BTW. I don't think it's only Sarah living there. It is a very active spot. A friend and I left the area with 2 ghost children in the back seat. Have fun!

I was born and raised in those same oil fields you are talking about. I can tell you it got started because an old oil pump would make a squeeching sound and kids would take a person out there late at night and get out of the car and start walking then they would hear that noise and take off running back to the car saying tha sound was coming from Sarahs grave.

True she died from a sickness and was buried in the 1800s. End of story. To bad people make up weird stories about a dead kid. Sad.

It sounds like an interesting story, no matter what version it is. Perfect for gravehopping and researching. I like finding small mysterious graves and researching them. Any information is helpful.
