Wilburton Cemetery Montgomery County Texas
aka Tamina Cemetery

From Conroe, take I-45 South to the Tamina Road exit. Take a left at the lights crossing under the freeway. Go straight (this is still Tamina Road.) until you cross railroad tracks; then take a right turn (this is now Main Street, Oak Ridge North, Texas). Drive straight along Main Street until you see the Electric Company's sub-station and slow down immediately. The cemetery will be on your left, just a short distance from the sub-station. Key Map 252B. Our thanks to Gail Rapoza for updated directions.

I am looking for Graves of Thomas Spruce, died abt 1881.
Also graves of Lewis T. May, died 13 June 1909 and wife Caroline May, died 7 Sept 1908, supposedly buried in Wilburton. These are my great grandfathers and great grandmother. I am at a dead end (no pun intended).  Can you or anyone else Please help me locate my ancestors? Thanks for any help or advice to aid me in my search.
