Cedar Point Cemetery, Houston County, Texas

Cedar Point Cemetery, Houston County

This cemetery is located east of Crockett down SH 21 in Houston County. Turn right after 12miles on FM1733. It is on the property of the Cedar Point Baptist Church which is currently active. There is a historical marker placed near the entrance and there is a cemetery association meeting the fourth Sunday every June.

Please note that the comments column contains my personal observations and things I thought would be helpful. Also, I recorded every marker, which means, one person may be recorded twice if they had two markers (i.e. a military marker in addition to their family marker). If you have any questions after viewing the list, please e-mail me at Letty Harrington.

The following is a list of names of people supposed to have been buried in the Cedar Point Cemetery which we did not see headstones for when we visited. We may have missed it, it may have been destroyed or they may never have had one, as my research sources often use cemetery records as opposed to headstone transcriptions. I suggest that if you desire further information on any of the following, that you contact the Houston County Courthouse which has a historical society that resides in the courthouse building..
