The Richard Eaton family came to Texas in 1833 as members of the Robertson Colony. They moved to the Eaton area in 1845. The cemetery was started on the Eaton land when Richard's first wife, Mary, died in 1848. Richard and his second wife, Charity, are also buried there.

This is a complete recording of this all existing headstones in this cemetery as of Aug, 2003. There are perhaps other unmarked graves.

    What makes us Different?

    Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

    Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
