Austin County Cemeteries
Most of the small cemeteries are still hosted here
because they are historic and/or no longer receiving interments.
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.
East of Bellville
Go out Hwy 159 toward Hempstead about 3 miles. On your left there is a ranch entrance (gate locked) to the Wright place, which is leased by Sammy Pierce. From the ranch entrance, you go up the hill about ½ mile to an open field.
The cemetery is in a cleared field with thick clusters of yaupon. In one of these clusters there is an old tree, and a barbed wire fence encircles the clump. One of these is a double stone. There may be other burials where stones have tipped over or wooden markers have crumbled, because the stone markers occupy only about a quarter of the fenced-in area.
