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 December 2008.

Supplemental information provided from: TD-Texas Death Index, TDC-Texas Death Certificate, TB-Texas Birth Index, SSD-Social Security Death Index, WWI Draft-Registration Records, 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

This headstone originally marked the grave of Virginia E Dodson Henderson who was b 14 May 1858 d 9 Jan (Or July) 1884.  She was Carolyn Bishop Nelon's Great Grandmother.  The private cemetery where she was buried in Kimble Co. Tx was destroyed and Carolyn got only this headstone.  It was her wish that it be used to mark her grave to give her Great Grandmother a place in which to be remembered.  The inscription reads "Weep not, she is not dead but sleepeth."
