Shepherd Cemetery, Houston County, Texas

Shepherd Cemetery, Houston County, Texas

This cemetery is about 13 miles west of Grapeland on FM227 near the Greater New Hope Church.

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.
