Sealy Holy Cross Cemetery 

From Sealy go south on Hwy 36.  Travel 1.8 miles from I-10 overpass and turn left on Stockhold road.   

Immediately across the Santa Fe Railroad, the cemetery will face the road on the left.

Please remember that many of the older cemeteries are located on private property. Please respect not only the cemetery but also the owner's rights. Always obtain permission to enter private property.

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
