Pearsall Catholic Cemetery (West)

 

Adjacent to Old Radio Road and the Veteran's Cemetery which are located to the right side of The Catholic Cemetery as you look at the sketch below.

The Frio County Cemetery also adjoins this cemetery, and is situated on the left side of the Catholic Cemetery as you look at the sketch below.

This cemetery contains 1152 identifiable graves and approximately 350 graves that have no identification markings on them.

Each grave shown on the master list has an area identification code. The numbers represent areas as depicted on this chart. Areas in numbers 1-10 are approximately 30 feet wide and run all the way across the cemetery. This area, generally speaking, is what we classify as the older portion of this cemetery and contains most of the "unmarked graves."

Numbers 11-21 identify areas containing approximately two rows of grave markers. The areas between the roads and the fences along the right and top of this diagram are designated with a letter F.

The Old Catholic Cemetery is getting a face-lift. Over the past two years (2002-2004),
Rey G. Ramirez and Arnold (Nandy) Hernandez have contributed their own time
and monies (over $700), and Nandy also auctioned off two of his steers to raise
additional monies to revitalize the appearance of this cemetery.

As many of you know, the older portion of this cemetery was in dire need of
cleanup, general maintenance, etc. to bring it up to acceptable standards.
Some graves had caved in and needed fill dirt; shrubs had grown into trees
and needed trimming or even removal; prickly pear had overrun some graves
and had to be taken out; and, weeds and grass had to be controlled and
mowed.

This condition is not necessarily due to willful neglect. Many families
have died off or in some cases, their descendants, two or three generations
removed, have moved away from Frio County. Taking proper care of cemetery
plots from afar is a very difficult proposition.

In addition to the cleanup, an inventory of all graves was performed.
This project was spearheaded by Joe Tafolla; with help from Rey Ramirez,
Nandy Hernandez, John Hawley and Margie Morales Warren.

Our goal is to have a listing of all the graves "on-line" so individuals who have
Internet access can view it. Copies of this listing will also be provided to the
Pearsall Public Library. Persons who do not have access to the Internet will have
an opportunity to make use of this information by visiting the library.

You, too, can be part of this process. Should you know of a relative or
friend who is buried in the cemetery but who is not found on the list,
please notify John Hawley at the following E-Mail address: kickhome@aol.com.
John can also be reached by mail. His home address is: 6826 Brookfield, San Antonio,
TX. 78238.

We need the "full" name of the decedent; however, additional information
such as date of birth, date of death, or any other pertinent data, if known,
would also be helpful. Note: If you only know the year of death or birth
that is acceptable.

We really need your help in identifying unmarked graves and in maintaining
the cemetery grounds. Thank you!
