Can someone locate this Karnes County cemetery for me? The family seemsa to have been associated with the town of Helena, so maybe in that vicinity? Can anyone report on this cemetery's survival and accessability? Contact information for landowner?

I'm working on application for TX Historical Commission designation of the HAYS County (near Buda) Cocke Family Cemetery, but have learned of residence of (and CSA service from) FREDERICK BIRD SMITH COCKE in Karnes Co. Believe his wife is buried in Karnes Co. family cemetery; he died 1903 in Kerr Co., TX, but was buried at the Cocke Family Cemetery in Hays County.

In addition to interest in Karnes County's Cocke Cemetery, am interested in this family's experience in this county.
