Parker Cemetery, Houston County, Texas

Parker Cemetery, Houston County, Texas

This cemetery is located in far north Houston County, off of FM 2022 southeast of Grapeland. (There is another Parker Cemetery NW of Grapeland off of FM 1272.)

Relationship information on Ingrams and Sharps in far right column was contributed by Faye Ingram Wendeburg.

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.
