Following the August 26th murders, surviving family members buried Reverend England, Selena, and her two children Susie and Isaiah, at Ben Dye Cemetery near Whitesboro, Texas. Local historian Ruth Varley made a detailed inventory of the cemetery before it fell into disuse. Varley noted that the four England graves were each marked by red sandstone slabs. Here is a picture of one of the England graves. Today the cemetery is no longer in use and has become overgrown with vines and saplings.
