Historic Texas Cemetery


To reach New Zion Cemetery from Trinity, Texas, take State Hwy 19 north toward Lovelady, go approximately 6 miles to the cemetery sign on the left of the hwy, turn left and proceed thru unlocked gate for about one-quarter of a mile.  The cemetery is on the right thru gate..

For the compiled  list, both Trinity County Cemeteries 1980 and the second edition Trinity County Texas Cemeteries 1992 both published by Trinity County Historical Commission (TCHC) were consulted.  You may contact the cemetery association through Trinity County Historical Commission, P.O. Box 123, Groveton, TX 75845,  if you have any corrections, questions or information to add to this listing.  Letty Harrington did the photo survey: Nov. 6, 2001. A new survey was done on May 26, 2004 by Mary Mason Abshier, Virginia Buckle Arnold and Capt. Andy Wilson.
