Paradise Garden Cemetery, Weimar, TX
On your online list of African-American cemeteries, I do not see Paradise Garden Cemetery located near Weimar, TX, next to a well kept "white's only" cemetery. Most of my family is buried there dating back to the late 1800s. For years my family has had to pay someone to maintain our family plot. The white cemetery has maintenance people to keep the grounds up. Unfortunately, I live in California and therefore it is difficult to make sure that my family plot is being properly maintained. Although it is a small cemetery setting, I believe it is still worthy of being on your list.
