Old Zion Cemetery, Houston County, Texas

This cemetery is located in far north Houston County, north of Kennard off of 227. It is also known as the McCelvey Cemetery.

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.
