Cemetery is located inside the Phillips Chemical Plant. In Old Ocean take a left, south on FM. 524 (toward Sweeny, Texas) FM. 524 runs right through the middle of the Plant. Take the first road to the right after you pass the Plant, which will be CR. 359. CR. 359 dead ends into Plant property near the Armstrong Lake. Take the third shell road, about 200 yards down on your right, as you go down CR. 359. That shell road goes into the Plant and across railroad tracks, then take a left for a short distance, it dead ends by the Armstrong Cemetery.
The Armstrong family use to own the Property where the Chemical Plant is now located. The supervisor in 2000 was cleaning it up and making arrangements to protect it. The last burial that we know of was in the late 1800's.
I recorded these tombstones in 2000 along with a Plant supervisor. It is all the visible burials but does not include the estimated 15 sunken unmarked graves.
