New Hope Cemetery, Upshur County, Texas

Many of our ancestors are buried in this cemetery, beginning with the oldest headstone for J.J. Stanley. If you are researching any of these families, I encourage you to go to my main page and check my Surname Index for further information. I also own several Upshur County History and Genealogical books that I am happy to do look ups in.

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.
