Magnolia Cemetery (Baytown)

 

Magnolia Cemetery by George Wolf Jr. 1985-2007
.
Burial ground known as MAGNOLIA CEMETERY on 4th Street, just off Fayle Street, in Baytown,Texas, is on private property. To the knowledge of the owner, Mrs. B.M. Holland, there is no record of this land being a cemetery. It is presumed that permission was given to bury there without it being designated a cemetery.
In about 1938 there was an order from the City of Baytown that no more burials would take place in this location.
The late Mr. B.M. Holland purchased this land after this order was given by the city.
A number of graves have been moved from this site to other cemeteries.
There are some stones there without inscriptions. There are unmarked graves and much vandalism. This cemetery was visited in 1985 and the land battle was still being waged.
There were several new markers on the grounds.

I visited the cemetery again in 2007. It had a new sign and a marker about the cemetery. The buildings were all gone that were on the property. Nice open field but the tombstones still gets vandalized. Some of the markers that were there in 1985 are now gone. This is a partial listing of the cemetery.
There are 6 who have death cert.’s.
