Cox Ranch Cemetery
San Augustine Ranch, now known as the Cox Ranch, is located thirteen miles east of the community of Organ, Dona Ana County. This historically prominent ranch was the site of a military outpost during the Mescalero Apache Indian wars and was the site of the surrender of the garrison of Fort Fillmore to Texas troops under Colonel John R. Baylor in 1861. There are five burials one-half mile west of the ranch house; four near the corrals; and two one-half mile southeast of the house, all unmarked, as reported by Lee Myers.
