Interment Places of African-American Persons in Kaufman County Texas

  Donated by: Kathey Hunt, Co-Coordinator of Kaufman Co., Texas TXGenWeb Project

 

The following are all known marked burial sites that contain the remains of African-American persons buried in Kaufman County Texas. The words *FORMER SLAVE on any of the Kaufman County cemetery records denote persons proven to have lived a portion of their lives in bondage. We have so noted them as to pay homage to those individuals and as a reminder to all who see these pages that they will never be forgotten.

 

**NOTE: These burials all have tombstones or some type of inscribed marker those graves of persons in   

                 Unmarked Graves are in another section

Lawrence Cemetery #2 also known as Lawrence Black Graveyard

In the Lawrence Community, west of Terrell, Texas

 

This Enumeration Transcription is from Field Notes of an enumeration done in 1995 by Marie Reasonover

Enumeration was done in ROWS. Rows were recorded from the front gate (which is in the SE corner of the site - northward towards the back of the cemetery: Row 1 was recorded west to east, Row 2 recorded east to west, Row 3 recorded west to east, and so on.
