Coleman County Cemetery Inscriptions

Coleman County Cemetery Inscriptions is a set of books pertaining to Coleman County, Texas history was published by Ralph and Judia Terry and Vena Bob Gates in 1988.  This three volume set contains all inscriptions found on every known gravestone in Coleman County.  It does not contain each verse found on some stones, but does have all complete names, birth and death dates and any other genealogical information found on these stones, such as marriage dates, common markers for couples, military records, and other valuable information.  In some cases, we added other known information gleaned from obituaries, death records, and personal knowledge.  We have added lists of people known to have been buried at various cemeteries, but lie in unmarked graves.  The main reason these cemetery inscriptions are so important, is these stones contain the only records of many births and deaths prior to the early 1920's, when deaths began to be recorded by the county and state governments.
