INFORMATION,  NOTES,  LEGEND,  AND  ABBREVIATIONS

     Some of these are links to web pages authored by other researchers, some are links to information submitted to the USGenWeb Archives Project, and some are links to projects now under way to photograph headstones in Nacogdoches County cemeteries. NOTE: Each researcher tries to be as accurate as possible in making transcriptions, but the condition of headstones often makes it easy to incorrectly transcribe a date or spelling of a name. All genealogy data should be verified with primary sources to confirm names and dates. Most of the transcribers have email contact information on their web pages to be used if you suspect an error in the transcript.

 

     If you know of other sites with Nacogdoches County, Texas cemeteries or if you'd like to contribute information please let us know. If you are working on a cemetery in Nacogdoches County please let me know. Although having multiple transcripts of the same cemetery can be used to compare and reduce errors, some people prefer to work on a cemetery that has not yet been transcribed to offer a greater depth of data to the researchers. When someone notifies me they plan to transcribe a cemetery I will place a note below indicating that cemetery is currently being worked.

     Until August 2004 we had 117 cemeteries on this list. We now have 180 cemeteries listed, plus many name variations, thanks to Cathy Pulley whose masters thesis on Cemeteries of Nacogdoches County, Texas Since 1542 lists all known cemeteries of the county. Information on all cemeteries is included here with her permission. Many thanks to Cathy for her hard work over several years to gather this information. Dates of establishment of cemeteries are from Cathy's thesis; some dates are based on the oldest marker in the cemetery although there may have been indications of earlier burials.

Note: There is more information on most of these cemeteries in Cathy's thesis than what has been included on this web page so you might want to read her thesis at Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches if you get a chance.

   Thank you to all of the volunteers that have contributed much of their time and efforts performing surveys and transcriptions.  Also, thank you Carolyn Ericson for allowing us to use the cemetery location descriptions from her Nacogdoches  County Cemetery Transcription  books. Some of these are being updated as I get driving directions to the cemeteries.

     For cemeteries on private property, only a general location is given unless the property owner has given permission to publish the location.   The general locations will help determine if a cemetery is near the residence of ancestors and might be a possible burial place for them.  One should be aware that some of the driving directions have been compiled from several sources (Pulley, Ericson, and Dan Crossmire's "Nacogdoches County Cemeteries" manuscripts at the East Texas Research Center) and a county map was used to determine the road numbers. Not all of these cemeteries have been visited yet to verify the driving directions. If you find problems and have better directions please let us know.
