Directions To The Grave Of E.W. McMillan
E.W. McMillan is buried in the Holloway Cemetery just south of Sherman, Texas and east of the city of Howe. From State Hwy. 75 north of Dallas go to the last exit for Howe, Hwy. 902. From Hwy. 75 you are about 5 miles from the cemetery. Travel east on Hwy. 902 through town. When you cross the Railroad tracks in Howe, go four miles east and turn left on Luella Rd. (Some maps have Holloway Cem. Road, but it is posted as Luella Rd.) Go 1.8 miles and you will see the cemetery on the right. Continue past the first entrance to the second, which is in a hard curve to the right. Travel up the hill into the cemetery toward the sign facing you and bear to the left in front of the sign. Go into the center drive up the hill, and the Baxter plot is just on your right. The McMillans are buried toward the rear of the Baxter section. While in the Baxter plot be sure to visit the grave of E.W. McMillan's wife's first cousin, Batsell Baxter.

Web editor note: In February, 2012, it was my privilege to visit the grave of E.W. McMillan. I was invited to take part in the annual Affirming The Faith Lectureship in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Getting into the area early, I was afforded the opportunity to put about 2000 miles on a rental car in order to locate graves of gospel preachers and church leaders of yesteryear in a wide area. My fourth day I was able to visit the grave of E.W. McMillan. His wife's first cousin, Batsell Baxter is buried close by.
