I am assuming that all of these massages are from/for African Amer. Cemeteries. There has been for many years a black Undertaker in Hempstead, Texas Singluary or Singulartary Funeral Home. That will be your best bet and contact for lists of who is buried where. We have a lot of African-Amer. Cemeteries in Waller County. the public got the City of Hempstead to take over the care of large cemeteries in Hempstead because the white cemeteries back in the 1940 or 1960 era had established a trust to maintain the white cemeteries, gave the trust to the city and the city to mow and upkeep paid for by the trust. the large black cemetery outside the city finally got the city to take care of this black cemetery. the others in Waller County are maintained by the Association for each cemetery. I think St.Thomas Cem. in Monaville might be black cemetery.
The Singletary funeral home have always been very nice to me when i needed information on black burials.
Funeral home: Brookshire area is the SCHMIDTfuneral Home
Waller area: Canon Funeral Home
Hempstead: black Singletary Funeral Home
white McWilliams, associated with Canon in Waller.
in Tomball Klein Funeral Home
in Magnolia: ___________ can't remember the name
