Search Saint Mary’s Cemetery:

This rural Catholic cemetery is located in Westphalia TX. The main cemetery is located behind the church, and school museum. It is fenced and has an arched sign over the gate, with brick columns. The family plots are all surrounded by curbing and completely covered with stones. The only grass is in the walkways and on the perimeter of the property. The earliest burial was 1884. There are no shrubs or trees in the cemetery. There is a Kiosk with the burials listed and a lovely pavilion. The older stones are located on the right side of the section. A massive size cross dominates an area designated for the graves of 11 Monsignors. The Monsignor’s graves are covered in concrete. Perpendicular to the main graveyard burials are some graves along the side fence. A large majority of markers are tall and have crosses at the top. One small grave is surrounded by antique fencing and there are several angels located on the property. A newer smaller cemetery is located closer to the road. It is fenced in black metal fencing and has a flagpole. This graveyard also has a Kiosk with a list of burials. Both cemeteries are well maintained and the rows are precisely lined up. The back cemetery appears to be almost full but the front section will allow for years of future interments.

From Lott Texas travel west on Hwy 320 until you reach Hwy 3000 and turn right. The church, cemeteries and various buildings will be located on your right.
