Middlebrooks Cemetery
Dripping Springs, Hays County, Texas

Lat: 30° 11' 01"N, Lon: 98° 09' 20"W

Contributed by David K Clark, Feb 15, 2004 [dclark@sprintmail.com]. Total records = 26.

This cemetery is a hike through woods and fields SE of the intersection of Creek Road and County Road 189 about 1/2 mile and west of Dripping Springs the same distance.

I have not found who owns this cemetery. The stones indicate this dates back to the 1870's. The last date shown was 1967. All stones were intact other than natural erosion processes.

It was well-fenced, and not overgrown. There was some high grass, tho not too much. A bit of cactus was growing on some graves. This place was not manicured, but it was not un-cared for from what I could see.

This is a list of all existing and legible markers. Transcribed during visit by David, Gary, and Valerie Clark on Feb 15, 2004. There were other markers, illegible or blank.
