cemetery category location

I am currently placing names in "Teck Cemetery, Travis County, Texas." The category listing for this cemetery places it in Teck, Travis county, Texas. The name Teck is not on the cemetery page, only the county name. In searching for the cemetery by using its coordinates, using Google Maps, I find Teck Cemetery but I cannot find any designation by name of Teck. The cemetery is in the city limits of Hudson Bend, Travis County, Texas. Should the category location name "Teck" be replaced with Hudson Bend in the category for this cemetery?

I did a GNIS search and the only thing coming  up with Teck in Texas is:https://geonames.usgs.gov/apex/f?p=138:3:::NO:3:P3_FID,P3_TITLE:1369676,Teck%20Cemetery the cemetery. It really should be named with the county. Hudson Bend doesn't have "city limits" since it is just a census-designated place.

Most of the obituaries I looked it even 'back in the day' just put it in Austin. Hudson Bend is a suburb of Austin in any event. Before the 70's this would have been 'out in the sticks'!
