Covey Chapel Cemetery is located about 9 miles West of Dilley on Texas Highway 85.

This survey was taken on December 27, 1997 by Tom Graham, and includes 76 marker listings. Efforts were made to assure the accuracy of this listing, but I could have made errors in reading of stones, and in transcribing the information to the web page. If you see any errors in this listing, please contact me.

This cemetery was named for Dr. John Van Epps Covey, who built a church at this location before 1900. The Rev. Covey also served as pastor of the Cotulla Baptist Church 1890-92 and 1894-96. He died in Cotulla January 13, 1898.
