Welcome to the Jeffrey Cemetery
The Jeffrey Cemetery, located on Farm to Market Road 713, 10 miles east of Lockhart, TX and 1 mile West of McMahan (pronounced McMan), TX sits on a hill overlooking the rolling woods and farmlands of Caldwell County, TX.
The Jeffrey Cemetery was first established in 1847 as a local cemetery with the burial of Martha Ellison. Its official name of Jeffrey Cemetery was adopted in 1938 and was adopted as a Historical Texas Cemetery in 2004.
The Jeffrey Cemetery is supported and maintained by the Jeffrey Cemetery Association, Inc.
As members of the association, we also have family members buried here. We are taking care of our loved ones who are buried here so their graves, memories, and history can be preserved for future generations.
Each year in June, the Jeffrey Cemetery Association holds a homecoming and reunion for the families and extended families of those buried here. Everyone is welcome to come and join us in fellowship and the reunion meal. Bring a guest and let them enjoy the fellowship and history of all that is here.
The Jeffrey Cemetery Association has completed the process of photographing and inventoring all burial plots. Current photographs of each headstone have been placed in our Headstone section. There are many old graves where the headstone is no longer readable due to errosion by the natural elements. Also, many graves are marked with a blank grave marker even though they are documented in the headstone listings. Every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of the headstone placement. Please read more about the project in our Headstone Photo Project section. If a family does not want the photographs placed here please contact the association and the photographs will be removed.
If you wish to have additional pictures or an Obituary added for a specific person burried at the Jeffrey Cemetery please contact Gregg Sterner at WebMaster@JeffreyCemetery.com.
The Old Oak Tree sits on the East side of the cemetery standing as a guardian to all that are buried here. No one knows for sure how old it is, but when you stand beneath its cool branches on a hot summer day you can feel the presence and strength of this mighty guardian.
