Compton-Beazley Family Cemetery

NAME OF CEMETERY: Compton-Beazley Family Cemetery
LOCATION: Pasadena, Harris County, Texas. The cemetery is located deep in the woods about a hundred yards southeast of the intersection Charles and Pine Circle in the El Jardin subdivision.
DESCRIPTION: The cemetery was situated next to the home of John P. Compton. The house was torn down in 1930, leaving only the cemetery. Nearly all of the surrounding Beazley and Compton properties have been sold out of the Compton family, but the cemetery itself is presently owned by Bruce Compton. The cemetery is forty-one by forty-one feet. It is currently protected by a chain-link fence, but it was originally enclosed in a picket fence made of cypress that was largely destroyed by a 1950 wildfire. There are nine marked graves surrounding a large monument that contains the name, birth date and death date of all but the last of the burials. John Perkins Compton is the only name not found on the monument. His is a VA-issued military marker showing birth and death dates and his military service.
NUMBER OF KNOWN BURIALS: 9
SOURCE OF INFORMATION: Visual inspection of markers. Inscriptions read and transcribed by Bruce Compton, April 18, 2002.
COMPLETENESS: All markers that existed on April 18, 2002 have been read, transcribed and photographed and are presented here.
