Richard, Texas Location

"The ghost town Richard, TX is on FM 981 about 7-8 miles east of Blue Ridge, and only 2-3 miles east of Frognot (which also lies on FM 981).

The picture of the cemetery is on top of one of the many hills in this region, on FM 981. There is a county road that intersects with FM 981 right across from the cemetery and runs north-south. I hope this helps with the actual location." - Matthew Todd, January 26, 2007
