Mount Olive Cemetery

Cemetery notes and/or description:
This cemetery is located near the town of Mont, Texas, and should not be confused with the cemetery of the same name located at Mount Olive, Texas.

Also known as the Burt Cemetery, or the Mustang Cemetery, or Rocky Creek Baptist Cemetery

The oldest marker in this cemetery is for John W. Moores who died August 1, 1859. There are both white and African-Americans buried in this cemetery. The black section is up the hill toward the back fence and the markers are not as old as in the white section. It's possible that the white portion of the cemetery was once called the Burt Cemetery and the black part the Mount Olive Cemetery. There are thirty marked graves and at least twenty others that are not marked.

Go south from Hallettsville on FM 318, turn left at the Mont Store, turn right at the first road, cross the bridge and the cemetery is at the first gate to the right and up on the hill.
