You didn't say which locality or agency has jurisdiction over the road where the sign was located. There may be different laws governing signage depending on whether it is a federal, state, county or local road.
Since it is an historical cemetery (you give a date of 1870) have you looked into obtaining an Official Texas Historical Marker? Here's a link to information about that program:
Another good place to get information about cemetery issues is from Gerron Hite at the Texas Historical Commission. He administers the program described in this Oct 2000 press release:
To contact Gerron, go to the Commission's cemetery page:
Hope this information helps. Let us know what happens.
