Re: Cleveland, TX. city boundary line

I have learned that the people who post some of the info on Find-a-grave don't actually know where some of the cemeteries are located. A great deal of people post info copied from obits and some from where persons think people were buried. Too, they don't know where the cemeteries are actually located, but are only making guesses.

Also, I have found that a number of the obituaries from Liberty County show persons buried in the Montague Cemetery, but the articles don't state where the cemetery is located. Thus, anyone not familiar with the cemetery locations would assume that the Montague Cemetery was located in Liberty County.

The persons are mistaken who state the Montague Cemetery is located in Old Waverly. I have done a great deal of historical research regarding Old Waverly and the cemteries located there and there has never been a Montague Cemetery located there.

One of the persons who posted quite a bit of info on Find-a-Grave admitted that she really didn't know where the deceased were buried. That was the beginning of my learning that a great deal of the info on Find-a-Grave does not come from persons who actually walk the cemeteries and copy the headstones.

Your help is most appreciated in this matter and a definite location of the Montague Church and the cemetery will settle once and for all the exact location.

Again, many thanks for your help.
