Cemetery confusion

Are Pear Orchard Cemetery and Blanchette Cemetery one and the same? Recently headstone pictures were taken in what we thought was Pear Orchard but when I went to put them on I got totally confused. Some of the persons were entered in Pear Orchard, Blanchette, or Blessed Sacrament. The cemetery had no sign or formal entrance. Driving instructions on google should have taken us to Pear Orchard.

My daughter and I are researching African American WWI veterans of East Texas and it's important to have the correct burial site (if possible). Death certificates are often incorrect.
