Aransas County, Texas

Cemeteries


Each cemetery has its own Cemetery Association.  The Rockport Cemetery Association is in the process of indexing the cemetery records on computers.  We hope this can be made available on the Internet in the future.  Currently, there are indexes and books in the Aransas County Public Library of the Lamar and Rockport cemeteries.  There are also links provided below for data that is now online.

The following cemeteries are the major ones located in Aransas County; however, there may be other small family cemeteries which are not included here.  If you know of any cemeteries that are not listed, please send us an email giving us the name and location of the cemetery.
