Wilson Co. Cemeteries of TX

I am sending you the burials from a small cemetery located near St. Hedwig, Texas (that we became aware of about three years ago).  It is hidden in underbrush and on private property out in a field in the edge of the woods.  My husband and I got into the cemetery and documented the few burials.  The property is owned by Dr. Arthur D. Zucht, III of San Antionio.  I spoke with Dr. Zucht regarding the placement of these names on your cemetery site and he gave me his o.k.  I did not know what the name of the cemetery was until I spoke with Dr. Zucht and he said he had named it COUNTRYSIDE MEMORIAL PARK CEMETERY.  He also said he had an area fenced in at this location to handle 200 burials but a lot of work needs to be done prior to any more burials.

From Highway 87 West in La Vernia; take FM 1346  toward St. Hedwig, Texas.  Go 2.5 miles until you see a sign that reads CEMETERY LANE.  Take a left and go 1/2 mile.  You will see a fenced enclosure, approximately two acres with an aluminum pipe gate.  The cemetery is located at the back of the property under oak trees and grapevines. You can not see the stones from the road.  This cemetery is located in the community of Carpenter.(Wilson County, Texas

This is an old cemetery that dates back to 1854
