In Prairie Hill, TX, one mile north of the intersection of FM339 and FM73. The Cemetery joins the property of the Prairie Hill Baptist Church.

Prairie Hill Cemetery came into existence in 1894 as a part of a deed from I. R. Leathers and wife, Medora A. Leathers to the Prairie Hill Baptist Church. It is believed the first marked grave was in 1894.

There are marked graves and an unknown number of unmarked graves. Early records were destroyed by fire. Also some of the older stones with the passage of time have lost their identity.

It was not until Apr 01, 1976 that a portion of that was deed was formerly deeded to the Cemetery and the Prairie Hill Cemetery Association was charted A perpetual care endowment fund was established and the interest derived from it is used for the upkeep and beautification of the cemetery. Extra acreage has been added to the Cemetery to meet the future needs.

These records were compiled in 2002 from tombstones, previous transcripts, and Sexton records of the Prairie Hill Cemetery Association, Mary Burke, Treas.

I apologize in advance for any unintentional errors which I may have made. Please contact me if you know of any corrections or additions.

    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.
