LCHC Asks for help on cemetery search and survey


The Liberty County Historical Commission chair Linda Jamison announces the  beginning an extensive survey of all cemeteries in Liberty County and the group needs help!  There are over 120 “known” cemeteries in Liberty County but many other burial sites exist but have not been located. Liberty County Historical Commission Chair, Linda Jamison, pointed out the importance of this survey- quote: “Cemeteries are among the most valuable of historic resources. They are reminders of various settlement patterns, such as rural communities, homesteads and ghost towns.” end quote   Its been pointed by many genealogy experts that cemeteries often reveal information about historic events, religions, lifestyles, professions and family genealogy! County Historical chair  Jamison hit hard on the importance of this effort with a plea that they really need volunteers from every area of the county to help with this survey.  If the cemetery is on private property, they will contact the recorded owner and seek permission to examine the cemetery, to photograph and complete an information sheet provided.  For those who would be interested in helping the Liberty County historical commission complete this critical historical survey or for those who may know of an abandoned, desecrated or previously unknown burial site which needs to be recorded, please contact the commission by email: The address  lchc318@gmail.com or by phone or text: 936-334-5813 for more information.
