The landowner of the property this cemetery is on is Tony Davies of Houston, Texas. The cemetery is now in perfect condition and all the gravestones have been repaired to the original condition. If you have any further questions concerning this cemetery, I would be glad to answer them.Transcription was done on Jan 29, 2005 by Kyle Osborn and includes all existing gravestones included in the cemetery.- Kathleen Osborn
