Galloway Cemetery


Peter James deed states that his land is on part of the Galloway League and on the Little Brazos River, which is at the bottom of the hill from the cemetery. It is most likely that the Galloway Cemetery is on the Galloway League as well.

Take Hwy. 6 south from Hearne towards Bryan/College Station. Just before the Camp Arrowmoon sign, turn right onto a short sandy road that runs into the Old Hearne Road (also known as the Old Bryan Road). Turn left on the Old Hearne Road, then right onto Watts Road. Go .5 mile to Lee Chapell Road, turn left, go .7 mile to nine mail boxes on the left, turn right on next sandy road.  About ten families are buried here.  This cemetery includes both African American and Caucasian burials.


... If you have ancestors buried on private property or government land that the law (at least in Texas) says that you have the right to visit their graves at least twice a year (First Sunday in April & First Sunday in October) from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Read more about Cemetery Visitation Days

WAUGH, COLONEL ALEXANDER, 1815 - 1875, Company F, 4th Mo. Infantry, CSA (grave marker has disappeared). Colonel Waugh served in the Confederate Army. He brought his family to Texas in 1863. Some documents concerning Colonel Waugh are located at Tulane University. In the War of the Rebellion series, there are several reports, including communications from Colonel Waugh in the early part of the Civil War. Colonel Waugh was one of the first school teachers in Benchley. 
Bill Boyd  notes Col. Alexander Waugh's grave marker has been uncovered. It wasn't lost, just over grown.
