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: 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.  Information in Slate Gray furnished by Tommy Woodward, October 2009.

WW II

 

 I did some investigation of the James Crawford issue.  I didn’t find the DOB 8 Aug 1922 and DOD 5  Apr 1993 for a James Crawford.  But there is a James Age 7 in the 1930 Census with Guy and Mamie as parents in Brewster Co.  I believe this is the James Lafayette Crawford b 1922 d 1997.  But I didn’t find records for him either, other than the census.  So I still believe that the first James Crawford is a record error and there was only one, James Lafayette b 1922 and died 1997.
