Brewster County, Texas

Elm Grove Cemetery

I wish to thank Mary Bell Lockhart and the Elm Grove Cemetery Association for this updated list of interments for Block 1-A.  Their hard work is appreciated.  Thanks so much to Mary Bell Lockhart for the pictures of the headstones and the information she furnished for the individuals of Elm Grove Cemetery.  Historic Alpine has a new project to identify the Brewster County Pioneers--people who were here as adults before 1920.  A column has been added "Historic Alpine" to identify these people.  Updated August 2008.

Supplemental information provided from: HA-Historic Alpine, TD-Texas Death Index, TDC-Texas Death Certificates 1890-1976, TB-Texas Birth Index, SSD-Social Security Death Index, WWI Draft-Registration Records (Note: they may have registered for the draft but not served), Obit-Obituary, Cen-US Census, Fam-Family Records  Information is provided as a guide to , not a replacement for, official source records.  Note from Peggy Allen, the notes in dark orchid were obtained from the death certificate.  If you would like to view the death certificate go to, Texas Death Certificates 1890-1976
