Germany Cemetery, Houston County, Texas

Germany Cemetery, Houston County, Texas

This cemetery is marked on the Houston County Map as "Pleasant Hill Cemetery", but is in the Germany community and the sign on the gate is "Germany Cemetery". It is located in far north Houston County, off of FM 2022 southeast of Grapeland.

Please note that the comments column contains my personal observations and things I thought would be helpful. If there is parent information in this column, I obtained it from Houston County birth records. 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.
