Houston, Florida, Pioneer Cemetery

Cemetery records, such as tombstone and sexton’s records, may give birth and death dates, age at death, name of spouse and children, a maiden name or, occasionally, a birthplace. Tombstones may have symbols or insignias indicating military service and social or religious affiliations. It is important to look at surrounding tombstones because family members may also be buried nearby.
