Welcome

Welcome to the Snow Hill, Texas Website
New Gate in Fall Colors
This web site is a result of a financial gift from the son of a lady buried in the Snow Hill Cemetery to the Snow Hill Cemetery Association. His request is that family ties be developed so that not only his children but others may see how members of the major families buried here were interconnected through marriage. To find out how families are related through marriage by clicking on the link at the bottom of the column on the left titled (or the underlined to right) Family Ties.

The information in this web site is prepared by Randy Presley. Both my paternal and maternal grandparents are buried here. I am also one of three trustees of the cemetery perpetual care fund. If you have additional information, questions or corrections to what I have entered on this web site, please contact me. I can be reached via email at randy@presley.com or by postal mail:

In order to fulfill the donor's request, we still need lots of information. I am building a family tree for as many of the families with relatives buried at Snow Hill. For this I am using a computer genealogical software, "Family Tree Maker," which is readily available at any store selling software. It is extremely easy to use and requires no complicated numbering. For anyone who is willing to furnish me information on Snow Hill families I will be more than happy to share the family tree data that I have accumulated by sending you a CD. If I have not already contacted you and mailed a genealogical form or forms for your family, please contact me at the address above and I'll be glad to mail the forms to you.

Since families in the 1800's and early 1900's in this area did not have the means of travel as we have today, they often married within the community or the nearby communities. My research has taken me to the Blevins-Cason Cemetery, the Justiss Cemetery, the Center Grove Cemetery, the Concord Cemetery, the Traylor family Cemetery and major cemeteries in Mt. Pleasant, Daingerfield and surrounding communities.

Please visit the History of Snow Hill and read about the expansion of the cemetery and the new commemorative fence that is now finished.

The Cass County Genealogical Society has done an excellent job of cataloging all of the cemeteries in Morris County. They have published this into two volumes with one being for the South part of the county and the other for the North part. Snow Hill is in the South volume. For anyone who is interested buying one of these books, the Cass County Genealogical Society may be reached by email at cass_tx_gen_soc@yahoo.com. Many relatives of people buried at Snow Hill are buried at Concord Cemetery, the Daingerfield City Cemetery, the Reynolds Cemetery and the Blevins-Cason Cemetery.

Other links that will take you to many other cemeteries are: www.rootsweb.com from here you can go to the state and then to the county and then to the cemetery you are looking for. Not all cemeteries are listed and it surprised me that the Hayes Cemetery was listed in the Morris County section but not Snow Hill nor many of the other Morris County cemeteries. I plan to try to get it included, however, there is a link to this web site which gives the same information.
