|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The Henry Whitehead Family came to Texas from Mississippi during the 1850's and settled in Houston County about 1862. A Confederate Veteran, Henry Whitehead (1821-1877) established this family cemetery on his land with the burial of his first wife, Mary Ann "Polly" (Priest) in 1870.
Only one of their seven children, Aaron, is buried there. The descendants of Aaron (1854-1927) and Elizabeth (1859-1928)Whitehead have continued to use and maintain the family burial ground. The site covers more than two acres and contains over sixty graves.
