Fostoria Cemetery Montgomery County Texas
Transcribed by Tonya Harris June 14,1999

Fostoria Cemetery is located on Fostoria-Tram Road. From Conroe take Hwy 105 East toward Cleveland. Turn left at Fostoria. Located about 1/2 miles in the woods, just before crossing railroad tracks on the left going into Fostoria. There is now a road (actually 2), one has a big iron gate and is clean, the other is all grown up but accessible. It's not a 1/2 mile, it's very short distance. Not even a minute driving.
If you would like your name added as a contact on any of the people that is listed in any cemetery, please email Jane Keppler and I will add this information. This would be a great way to find someone else that may be researching the name you are researching.
