Wood County, Texas

Wood County Cemeteries are listed here in the same order that they appear in the four volumes of cemetery records in our collection. Also shown are the volume number and page number where each cemetery listing begins.

Pictures of some tombstones will be made available as time permits and we are able to photograph them.

As time permits, complete transcription of surveys privately done will be added to this web site. In order not to infringe on any publication that may be or may have been done by the Wood County Genealogical Society only the person's name and year of birth and death will be included. If you have any information, or recent survey that has been done by you or any one who is willing to share the information with others, please contact Betty Miller and/or Patsy Vinson.
