PLEASE NOTE:   I do not live in Austin County and cannot do research.

NOTE:  I only do transcribing and helping people with genealogical research.  I have nothing to do with the cemetery, so if you are looking for information on purchasing plots or rules and regulations of the cemetery, contact the caretaker or a local funeral home.

 

 

History

 

Located in southeastern Texas, Austin County  is one of the oldest counties in Texas, organized in 1837 during the Republic of Texas.  It was founded from an old Mexican Municipality and named in honor of Stephen Austin. Austin County is bordered on the north by Washington County, on the east by Waller and Fort Bend Counties, on the south on Wharton County, and on the west by Colorado and Fayette Counties. Bellville, the county seat and second largest town, is fifty miles west-northwest of Houston.
