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.
