Rayford Rest Cemetery
Montgomery County, Texas

Transcribed by
Jane Keppler, Darlene Lee, and Cierra Laster
01/26/2002

 

Rayford Rest Cemetery is located in south county, just off Rayford Sawdust Road off IH 45. Go east on Rayford Sawdust approximately .09 miles and turn right just in front of the railroad tracks. Go .02 mile down dirt road. There is a sign on the right that says Rayford Rest with a phone number, 713-695-2354. You can see the cemetery in the woods.

It is a very large cemetery, with cyclone fence. Not taken care of in the back part, so you have to look through weeds and bushes to find some of the markers.
