Wilson Co. Cemeteries - a Tall order

Classification: Cemetery
I recently wanted to look up something in the Wilson County cemetery records on the web and of course went to the TexGenWeb site (and Cemeteries of Texas). Needless to say I was disappointed in the TexGenWeb as it has almost no info on cemeteries or anything else for that matter. But as usual I got sidetracked.
I got sidetracked by looking at the list of cemeteries at the USGS site and looking at most of the topographical maps of Wilson County. The internet is definitely amazing.
Then I thought at least with the help of someone more knowledgeable on the county we could at least get a more complete list of cemeteries in Wilson County even if it didn’t have the people interned in each. Plus we could show the map location

Is someone up to the challenge?

Below is what I came up with so far. This was from reading the message boards, looking at both the websites and reading the “TopoZone” maps. The names of the cemeteries might not be exactly right but hopefully someone can help.

Does Wilson county have a historical society that might contribute? Do they have an email address?

Thanks
Diane
