The City of Pasadena and Seabrook are workng on saving this cemetery.
I visited this cemetery on Feb. 25,2000, it is in great shape for its location.

There was some tree damage from Hurricane Ike but the little cemetery was in fine shape. Check on in 2009.

James Malachi Martyn settled in 1879 in the area that is now the Armand Bayou Nature Center.
