"During the Civil War a covered wagon came to James and Mary Campbell's home. This family had a very sick child and Mrs. Campbell took them in and did all she could to help with the little one, but she died that night.
There were no cemeteries so Mrs. Campbell gave a plot of ground for the little girl. That was the beginning of Campbell's Bayou Cemetery."
All Burials Listed are from the Vertical File, Moore Memorial Public Library, Texas City, Texas.
