|NAME OF CEMETERY: Cedarhurst Cemetery|
|LOCATION: La Porte, Harris County, Texas, USA. From state highway 146, go east on Fairmont Parkway. Turn right (south) on South 4th Street and drive until the street dead ends at the wastewater treatment facility. There is a hole in the woods on the right (west) side of the road that leads to the cemetery. This cemetery is on the east side of Little Cedar Bayou. The La Porte Cemetery is on the opposite side of the bayou from Cedarhurst. USGS/NGIS Map (closest point)|
|NUMBER OF BURIALS IDENTIFIED: 40 (+1 removal) as of July 10, 2002.|
|SOURCE OF INFORMATION: (1) Visual inspection of grave markers, June 30, 2002. Inscriptions read, transcribed and photographed by Bruce Compton, (2) Obituaries and death notices found in the La Porte Chronicle, and (3) An earlier survey by Lorine Brinley.|
|COMPLETENESS: All markers found on June 30, 2002 have been read, transcribed and photographed and are presented here. A few markers from Brinley's survey were not found. Rumor has it that there are some markers in the woods on the west side of Little Cedar Bayou, but a cursory inspection failed to find any.|
|EARLIER SURVEY: Unpublished survey by Lorine Brinley, held by the La Porte/Bay Area Heritage Society.|
|EARLIER SURVEY: See George Wolf's survey of the Cedarhurst Cemetery at his web site, Cemeteries and History of Harris County, Texas.|
