Welcome to the Austin County, TXGenWeb Project site!  My name is Jane Keppler and I am the County Coordinator for Austin County.  If you have an interest in helping to maintain this site, please email me.  I am looking for volunteers.

While visiting the site I hope that you will find valuable information to aid in your research for families in Austin County.
This site is part of the TXGenWeb and USGenWeb
projects.  All information on this site is FREE for your personal use.  If you paid to view any of these pages, please contact me.   If you have questions, suggestions or comments, please feel free to email me. To submit information please email me the information to be contributed to this site as well as your name and email address.
I must thank the previous coordinators, Joy, Steve and Linda for all the hard work and hours they have put into this project.  TXGenWeb needs more volunteers like them so if you are interested contact me.

PLEASE NOTE:   I do not live in Austin County and cannot do research.

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 or rules and regulations of the cemetery, contact the caretaker or a local funeral home.



Other Veterans

Please Help us.

 We believe all the names on this list are names of veterans.  Some are Veterans who definitely served in peacetime.  Others  may have served during a specific war, but we do not know when. or where.   Many names were given to us with very little other information.  We believe they once lived in Austin County, or have/had relatives here, or wandered through in the dark of night.   If you know more about anyone on this list, or,  if you have information for  Veterans that should be included in this category,  please let us know.  Also give us a source:  ie. "Family," name of publication,   url for a Web Site, etc.   Please keep the source  very brief so it will  fit into our little boxes.  Thanks!


If you are aware of other available records or can provide us with such records, please contact Jane Keppler  .


Our thanks to Joy Neely who  compiled most of this information.  Our sincere appreciation for her ongoing efforts to supply genealogical data to us all! 

Note: In the Source column, BT indicates Bellville Times, and SN , Sealy News.

Other abbreviations are:  DC = Death Certificate

                                                       DF = V.A. Death File                

                                           DR = Discharge Record


If you are aware of other available military records or can provide us with such records, please contact Jane Keppler.

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 Zaskoda
