The Blanco County Historical Commission will meet Thursday, March 8, at 6pm in the Hoppe Room at the Blanco County Annex in Johnson City.
The commission will have their regular business meeting, reports on the Blanco Cemetery, Post Oak Cemetery and School, and Sandy School House.
Commission members will be asked to vote on the 2012 project; the commission is preparing to keep a record of everyone buried in all of the county’s cemeteries and burial places, with a specific recognition of our veterans from all wars. Researching can be a tedious and difficult endeavor; however, the rewards can be refreshing and enlightening once the story is developed and completed for future generations to enjoy and be proud of.
If approved, the goal of the Blanco County Historical Commission Veterans Research Project will be to locate and identify each veteran buried in our county with this research. Each cemetery database will include name, date of birth, date of death, date of burial, short biographical sketch (if available), individual photograph, and headstone photograph. Therefore, it is the commission’s goal to be able to gather as much information as possible on each individual. Blanco County Cemetery researchers are counting on you, the family members, to help fill the gaps or provide a photograph of the individual.
