This cemetery was surveyed by Wynell Simpson [Wynells at msn.com]for the Grimes County website. She says that she may have missed a few stones and she knows that there are some graves there without stones. If you know of any she missed or if anything is misspelled, etc, please let her or me know.


Historical Marker 8568
Navasota, Texas
Erected 1988
From Navasota take SH 6 S approximately 9 miles to FM 2; then W on FM 2 approximately 1.2 miles to CR 327; then W on CR 327 approximately .3 miles.

Located on land which is adjacent to the 1873 subdivision of Courtney known as McAlpine Town, this cemetery was established by developer Dugald McAlpine (1795-1876). The oldest documented grave in the cemetery is that of W. S. Draper (1828-1873). There are some unmarked graves which may date from an earlier period. Those interred here include community leaders, descendants of early settlers, and veterans of the Civil War, World War I, World War II, and Korea. A cemetery association, formed in 1971, cares for the historic graveyard.


Names listed as links have photos of the tombstones. All tombstone photos provided by Wynell Simpson. Thank you Wynell!
