Search Greens Creek Cemetery:

The cemetery is located at the former site of Greens Creek Church near the Fayette County line about 7 miles southeast of Giddings on the property of Jimmy Luecke.

To reach the cemetery, from the intersection of Hwys 77 and 290 in Giddings, travel south on Hwy 77 about 2 miles, turn left or southeast for about 5 miles to an intersection. The cemetery is in a pasture to the left.

The first Greens Creek Cemetery site was soon abandoned due to poor drainage and a second site further south was used. Only three adults were buried here, the other five are infants.

Greens Creek Cemetery is unsigned and unfenced and unmaintained as a cemetery. It is inside fenced pasture land, and the pasture tract itself is adjacent to the Bethany Lutheran Church Cemetery. That other cemetery is signed and fenced, with public road access and an historical monument. The easiest way to locate Greens Creek Cemetery is to first follow the directions to the Bethany Cemetery, then walk along the road an estimated 350 yards further north, looking for the largest square marker in the distant grass and bushes. Binoculars or a camera with a good zoom help.
