Bettye--
I am a little confused...you are not talking about the same cemetery as Calvin, are you? The one he asks about is in north Travis/Williamson County and is a prepetual care cemetery.

As to a 1890's cemetery in Austin--frankly, there are a ton of them! I can think of 4 or 5 within 2 miles of my house. I recommend you look at the Travis County sites I listed for Calvin. Some of the cemeteries have been recorded and may list your relative. Or since you are regularly in Austin, you might check the Austin History Center, next to the Austin Public Library, to see if you can narrow it down somewhat. They have old Austin newspapers on microfilm and you might find an obituary that would list the cemetery.

Happy Hunting!
Andrea
