Robertson County Texas



Mount Moriah African American Cemetery


This listing is partially based upon information contained in the out-of-print book Cemeteries In Robertson County, Texas by Verna Corn Floyd and Vernelle Corn, copyright 1980, D. Armstrong Co., Inc., Printers/Publishers, Houston, Texas.  Updates, additions, and corrections have been made as a result of extensive cemetery and family history research and the invaluable assistance of relatives of people buried in this cemetery.



This cemetery is located off of Hwy. 6 between Calvert & Hammond. The Cottonwood African American Cemetery is just down the road past the Mount Moriah Cemetery. Both cemeteries are clearly marked with signs on Hwy. 6 (along with the Shilo Primitive Baptist Church). Turn right on County Road 130 when heading north out of Calvert heading towards Hammond. This cemetery will be on your left on the side of the road next to the Mount Moriah Church before you reach the railroad tracks.
