Wes Hicks Cemetery, Houston County, Texas

Wes Hicks Cemetery, Houston County, Texas

This cemetery is about 11 miles west of Grapeland on FM227. The Old Daily Family Cemetery is supposed to be adjacent to it, but we found no sign of it. There is evidence of many unmarked graves, so we have included a listing of those believed buried there from other sources at the end of the photo list.

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.
