Menke Cemetery

  East of Bellville, the cemetery is located off FM 529, south on Waak road approximately .2 mile.  Cemetery is on the west side of the road.

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.
