The Humphreys Cemetery, first burial in 1854, is an active
cemetery located about 2 miles southeast of Martindale, Caldwell County,
Texas. There are over 300 gravesites in this cemetery. The purpose
of this web page is to provide information about the cemetery and the
activities of those involved with care and upkeep.
On November 13,
2004 we will be celebrating the 150th anniversary of the first burial.
At that time we will present the Texas Historical Cemetery designation
received in 2003 and hope to dedicate an official Historic Texas Cemetery

We are urgently trying to
establish contact with all descendants and spouses of people buried in this
cemetery so they can participate and have a voice in our activities. If
you, or someone you know has been "out of touch", please
Register so that we know about
Since the cemetery is by and large
the resting place of a number of related persons, it is hard to not have some
kind of genealogical character to the Association's activities. Several families
have a number of burials. We hope to provide a means on this web page to tell
us about their history and it's relationship to the cemetery.
