Originally, the Bayland Orphan Home was sited near Morgan's Point on Goose Creek in what is now Baytown.

"The Orphanage was founded for children of deceased Confederate soldiers, chartered in 1866.

Historical Marker at the present-day site of Bayland Park off HWY 146 at the mouth of Goose Creek Stream.

A letter in the HMRC files from Louis van Meldert, Baytown, Texas, dated 25 May 1962 states "there was also a cemetery located nearby which has disappeared."

That statement is substantiated by an unpublished manuscript which mentions this cemetery.

No record has been uncovered that these graves were moved, and now there is no visible evidence of this little graveyard."
