Josserand Cemetery, Trinity County, Texas

Thiscemetery is located east of Groveton off Hwy 94. Anecdotal information from descendant is that once this was deemed a black cemetery most of the burials of white people were moved. However, the two unmarked Eddington's buried here were not moved.

Please note that the comments column contains my personal observations and things I thought would be helpful. Also, I recorded every marker, which means, one person may be recorded twice if they had two markers (i.e. a military marker in addition to their family marker). If you have any questions after viewing the list, please e-mail me at Letty Harrington.
