Lake Creek Cemetery, Houston County, Texas

Lake Creek Cemetery, Houston County, Texas

This cemetery is located south of Berea. Also see this. There were a lot of illegible stones, so we know our list is not nearly complete. Also, the week before we visited there had been a bad storm and the cemetery was filled with downed tree limbs and foliage. There was a community member that was cleaning as we worked. Please feel free to email me if you have any additional information.

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.
