Mr. Suitt was born in Erath County and passed away in a Hamilton Nursing
Rev. Emil V. Becker, officiating . Internment in Indian Creek cemetery.
He and Dorothy Scrimsher Suitt had a home he built between the Stone
Cotton Gin by Garrett Springs (Selden) and the old swimming and
Baptizing hole on Sims Creek. They also had an art studio and antique
restoration shop there. They attended the Selden Baptist Church.
He was a veteran and the Stephenville American Legion had a part in the
chapel and cemetery services> His membership for this year in the Legion
was paid anomynously.
The Green family, caretakers, told me that between the two gates to the
cemetery is a stone marking the grave of an Indian Scout who had assisted
settlers and fought with them against hostile Indian raiders: thus the
name of Indian Creek cemetery, church, and school.(behind Pleasant Hill
Methodist Church & through two catle Guards). Would anyone know his name
or tribe? Mr. Green's mom knew , but he could not remember.
Many there were from Missouri. Was he Cherokee, Caddo, or other? these
were two of the friendliest to Erath County settlers before John R.
Baylor rode onto the scene.
