Index of Cemeteries
When we have the time, we revisit some of the earlier cemeteries listed here and update the information. We photograph the headstones of the burials occuring after our original visit, and update existing information as necessary. Cemetery names & dates of updates appear here.

(A-A) indicates an African-American cemetery. (C) indicates a Caucasian cemetery. Those with neither abbreviation should be considered Caucasian, mixed, or not known.
THE FOLLOWING CEMETERIES ARE SCHEDULED BUT HAVE NOT YET BEEN VISITED AND PHOTOGRAPHED, BUT WILL BE WHEN THEIR TURN COMES. The cemeteries with an * asterisk are known by us to have family members (some distant, some close relatives) so we will likely visit them first. If you know of a cemetery not listed that you would like us to visit and enter here, let me know the name and location. Please be aware that we do not make overnight travels, so it must be a cemetery in reasonable proximity to Lufkin, TX - perhaps not more than a 2 - 2.5 hour drive.
