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 didnâ€™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 â€œTopoZoneâ€ 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?
