Grounds Cemetery, Houston County, Texas

Grounds Cemetery, Houston County, Texas

This cemetery is located in far north Houston County, off of FM 2022 northeast of Grapeland. There is a historical marker.

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.
