Coleman County Cemetery Inscriptions
Cemetery Inscriptions is a set of books
pertaining to Coleman County,
Texas history was published by Ralph and Judia
Terry and Vena Bob Gates
in 1988. This three volume set contains
all inscriptions found on
every known gravestone in Coleman County.
It does not contain
each verse found on some stones, but does have
all complete names,
birth and death dates and any other genealogical
information found on
these stones, such as marriage dates, common
markers for couples,
military records, and other valuable
information. In some cases,
we added other known information gleaned from
records, and personal knowledge. We have
added lists of people
known to have been buried at various cemeteries,
but lie in unmarked
graves. The main reason these cemetery
inscriptions are so
important, is these stones contain the only
records of many births and
deaths prior to the early 1920's, when deaths
began to be recorded by
the county and state governments.
