There are many early unmarked graves in Montgomery County. Private cemeteries have been lost forever. The only available information as to where a person was buried is the funeral home records, and it is not altogether impossible that errors occurred in recording the information in the funeral home records. If a researcher is aware of an unmarked grave, please send the information to us.


Conroe Memorial Cemetery is in Volume III of the Montgomery County Cemetery books. Click for a  lookup.

If you would like your name added as a contact on any of the people that is listed in any cemetery, please Jane Keppler or Jean Smoorenburg and we will add this information.  This would be a great way to find someone else that may be researching the name you are researching.
