Photos of Richard Williams and Carroll Cemetery Restoration for  Montgomery County Historical Commission by Ross Ohendlaski for his
Eagle Project October 2015

You may find it interesting to  see these photos taken of the  historic Richard Williams family cemetery and adjacent Carroll family cemetery which were cleaned as a Eagle Scout project by Historical Commission Youth Advisory Board (YAB) member Ross Ohendalski.


Ross was assisted by a number of people including YAB members Robert Lynch and John Taylor.


Richard Williams was a soldier in the Texas Revolution whose family land grant was east of present day Willis.  Richard Williams also served as a captain of the Texas Army in 1842 in the Somerville Expedition and in the 1840ís and 1850ís, a County Commissioner for Montgomery County.
