    • THOMAS CEMETERY, San Augustine County, Texas Copyright. All rights reserved. http://www.rootsweb.com/~usgenweb/copyright.htm http://www.rootsweb.com/~usgenweb/tx/txfiles.htm Recorded May 13, 2006, by Bobby E. Britnell (bbritnell@centurytel.net and sister, Sandra G. Britnell. Thomas Cemetery is another of the many old cemeteries in San Augustine County, with burials dating from the mid-1800's. The cemetery is clean and well-kept, and still in use for burials. Hurricane Rita had downed some trees and limbs and caused some headstone damage; all that has been completely cleaned up. There are a number of broken headstones, some missing stones, and some with deteriorated and unreadable native stone markers.

      DIRECTIONS: From San Augustine, at the junction of US96 and SR21, go west toward Nacogdoches on SR21 about 5 miles to CR274 on the left; there is a sign on the right side for Thomas Cemetery. Turn left and go a very short distance to the cemetery on the right. (CR274 is a narrow dirt road).
