Holtz Cemetery 

Location of Holtz cemetery:  Starting from the town of Bellville, go to Burleigh and turn right on FM 331. Go south to Coshatte road and turn right.  The cemetery is on J. W. Schmitt Farm.


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 contact the caretaker or a local funeral home.

PLEASE CHECK the Cemetery Index page as the below table may not be complete.

To look for obits go to Bellville Public Library site and click on Newspaper as there is a wealth of information for obituaries and other records.

Thanks to Carolyn Zascoda for updates to these files. May 2020
