Yes, my message is concerning African American burial in Hempstead, Texas.
However, this is a private family burial lot. We have spoken to the owner of the
Singulatary Funeral Home and they could not help us. We went to the lot about, maybe 10 years ago, but have not been able to find it recently. My father and my great grand mother were buried there. My father is Melvin Garner, and my great grandmother is Sarah Gregory Spiller. Sarah died in El Paso, Tx. and was buried in Hempstead. Melvin died in Houston, Tx. and was buried in Hempstead.Sarah died in1929, and Melvin in 1934. I have seen a picture showing the plot of Sarah " burial plot and it was right under a big tree. Also when we were taken ther by my uncle it was near a highway and someone was living in a motor home nearby.
