The team at spends time throughout the year researching and transcribing data for different states. All data that comes in is posted to the
appropriate county/state. During the first three weeks of December we are
focusing on Texas (the entire state). I currently host Dallas, Hunt, and
Lubbock Counties within the state. If anyone would be interested in posting any data related to Texas (or anywhere else for that matter), please forward it to me orto the appropriate county host and we will work to get it posted.

I'm looking for a burial record for Susan Boulmay. She died in Chambers County in 1880's and was buried in Galveston. Her parents were Isaac and Katherine Boulmay. I have the obit but no cemetery is mentioned.

Do orders for exhuming a body in Galveston exist ? Annie Augusta Stines died in Galveston in Dec 1875. I'm not sure where she was buried but I suspect it was Old City as the family had a burial there already. We think Annie was exhumed when the family moved to Chambers County in 1878-79. I'm almost positive she was re-buried in the family cemetery on Double Bayou. No marked headstone but there is a slab indicating a grave.

Are there any plats or origina pre-1900 storm records for burials in the Old City Cemetery in Galveston ? I've seen "Records of Internments Vol. 1" and would like to see Volume 2. Mary Smith died Jan 25, 1866 and was buried the next day. Cause of death was pneumonia. She was from Boston. I'm hoping there is a death record that gives her date of birth. Her age was given as 67. As I undestand it Old City was filled in ater 1900 storm so Mary's grave is probably forever lost.

Tomball, Harris Co., TX Zion Luthern Cemetery, now an official Historic Cemtery

Zion Lutheran Church Cemetery has been named an official State of Texas Historic Cemetery by members of the Harris County Historical Commission.

To celebrate this designation, the Cemetery will be the site of a dedication ceremony on June 27 at 2 p.m. to mark the unveiling of the Historical Cemetery Marker. The cemetery is located at 25800 Zion Lutheran Cemetery Road. The dedication of the Official Historic State Cemetery Marker will be conducted by members of the Harris County Historical Commission.

According to Zion Lutheran Church Cemetery Committee Chairman Charles Bogs, in order to receive official recognition as a historic cemetery, several months worth of research, conversations with state representatives and application processes were required.

Bogs explained that the cemetery was founded by the Mueller family in 1873 and was later used by the Stuebner family, who were neighbors of the Muellers. The cemetery was conveyed to Zion Lutheran Church in 1907 and is still in use today.
