Austin County Historical Commission, "The Cemeteries of Austin County Texas", Jim Bishop, Chairman, Betty Krueger, Secretary -- no date.
Located on private property (limited access) and very overgrown with majority of stones toppled over and being slowly covered by dirt and brush. Property fenced to protect it from cows.
Very quick overgrowth and trees toppling, not many stone markers still upright.
No one. Today is the first time I saw it. Saw property owner and he is too old to do anything about condition of cemetery.
