Samuel Chapel Cemetery

AKA Buckhorn (black).

Index now incorrectly shows names as buried in Buckhorn_S.

This will be corrected when the index is updated.

We apologize for the confusion.


From Bellville take on Hwy 159 to FM 1456.  Turn right and go to Korthauer road. 

 You will find Samuel Chapel Church about .4 mile down the road.  Turn right on dirt path beside church. 

 Cemetery is in fenced area behind church.  

(Samuel Chapel Cemetery has the recent acquisition of a Texas historical  cemetery designation.)    

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. October 2020
