Round Rock Cemetery


(Click here for Google map)  These entries are transcribed, as best as I can read them, from a few photos included on the CD-ROM "Austin & Vicinity:  The Human World" published by Visual Delights, Inc.  Photos are not included in this gravestone listing.  The photos on the CD-ROM are copyrighted by Visual Delights, Inc. and so are not reproduced here.  I have not yet had the time to visit Round Rock Cemetery and so do not yet have any photos of my own to put here.

These appear to be mostly children's graves, roughly carved (possibly by a family member).  Spellings are as they appear on the stones in the photographs.

Some further information and photos about Round Rock Cemetery can be found at Austin Explorer's Round Rock Cemetery page.


  1. BASS, Samuel.  Born July 21, 1851.  Died July 21, 1878.  Age 27 years.  "A brave man reposes in death here.  Why was he not true?"

    Sam Bass was an outlaw who was killed in Round Rock during a failed bank robbery attempt.  The shootout is reenacted every year as part of the Frontier Days celebration.  Additional information can be found at Old West Gravesites and at Find-A-Grave.  The photo at Old West Gravesites shows a different marker than the obelisk in the photo at Find-A-Grave and on the CD-ROM.  A more detailed account of his life can be found at FrontierTimes.com.

  2. Mrs (or "Mis"?) Emme(lin?) / BLAIR was born / di?e June / 1885

  3. HARRALL, Lucy Ann "was born Aug the 19 1864 and died Oct the 3 1864".  There is a photo of her stone available on her page at Findagrave.com.

    The SNOUTZ children below are marked with obelisks (or perhaps different sides of the same obelisk - I can't tell from the photos) and the words of the inscriptions are abbreviated to fit within the edges of the stone's face.

  4. SNOUTZ, George Carter "was born Oct the 15 1873 and died Oct the 14 1874".  There is a photo of his stone on his Findagrave page.

  5. SNOUTZ, Joseph Denham (CD says "Josephine", but I cannot make out that any letters were ever carved after the end of "Joseph").  "Was born Dec the 1 1874 and died Nov the 8 1875."  There is a photo of his stone on his Findagrave page.

    SWEET LITTLE
