St. Martinsville Cemetery
AKA McDonald Cemetery

 
TXGenWeb Project    USGenWeb Project

This is an African American cemetery. Quite a few of the death certificates for those buried in this cemetery say that they are buried in "McDonald" Cemetery. I believe that this cemetery was once known as that name so I am combining the records. I have also seen some mention of "McGinty" Cemetery on the death certificates.
Listing by Sandi Costa on the Texas Tombstone Project:
Saint Martinsville Cemetery

Directions - from Navasota take 105 east for 5 miles to CR 362, turn right, go over railroad tracks 200 ft on the left is the cemetery. It is in the town of Martinsville.
