Tyer Cemetery, Houston County, Texas

Tyer Cemetery, Houston County

This cemetery is located a few miles east of Grapeland, Texas. Photos of visible headstones are as listed below, but there is another site that I found that has additional information regarding this cemetery. See Tyer-Lonestar Cemetery
on the Texas Tombstone Project page submitted by Carol Tyer Ellis.

Comments and more information from a Tyer descendant, click here.

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.
