Cemetery Map || Misc Cemetery Information

 

This Page contains directions, and a map reference and Cemetery Records Index number for the cemeteries located in Navarro County. Some will have links to a page containing more detailed information for the cemetery.  Some cemeteries in adjoining counties are also included because of the number of Navarro County residents buried there.

Cemetery Records can be purchased from the Navarro Co., TX Genealogical Society or at Corsicana Public Library for about $10 per volume.   Submitted burial records can also be found at  www.findagrave.com

The Texas Department of Transportation has online maps showing the location of most of these cemeteries at http://txdot.lib.utexas.edu.  There are also GPS coordinates and Topographical maps posted at www.topozone.com

Before his passing, Bill Young worked hard to file the necessary paperwork to preserve/protect the old cemeteries in Navarro County.  [Current List of Preserved Cemeteries]

Prior to the Civil War, circuit riding ministers began serving Methodist settlers in this area. By the 1880s a formal congregation was organized, and in 1881 land was acquired from Mark H. Bird on which to build a church and establish a graveyard (now known as Bird Cemetery). A sanctuary built that year was destroyed by winds several years later. The church moved to this site in 1902 and has continued to serve the community. Recent building programs have resulted in the construction of an educational building, a parsonage, and a new sanctuary. Texas Sesquicentennial 1836 - 1986 --Texas Atlas
