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.


World War One Veterans

The following information was taken from "A HISTORY OF AUSTIN COUNTY, TEXAS IN THE WORLD WAR" a thesis written by Ruby Grote Ratliff, B.A.  in August, 1931 for "Partial Fulfillment of the Requirements  For the Degree of  Master of Arts.  Chapter III entitled  "MILITARY SERVICES OF THE COLORED MEN"   lists the service records of two officers, "Men in the Army,"   men who were killed or who died, the wounded, two deserters, one man who was discharged without honor  and a list of  "the colored men whose names appear on the county list but whose records were not found."     Only part of the  information regarding these men is provided in order to fit it into a table. The lists were also  combined and alphabetized for your convenience.. We added cemetery information (not in thesis) when easily available.   The entire thesis is available for patrons to  use  in the reference section of the Bellville Public Library but may not be removed from the library. The following information is divided for faster downloads because the complete  file is large.  

Please choose first letter of veteran's  surname.
