Research Notes

The other children can be documented through cemetery records of the O’Neiil Cemetery, which is located 1 mile north of Leesville Highway 80 on the south side of O’Neill creek. The cemetery tombstones document birth and death dates for J.H., Carrie Bell, and Alice. All tombstones read “In memory of ..(name).son/daugher of Henry and Amanda O’Neill...” Also, all three of the children buried in the cemetery were around 1 ½ years old when they died.

The information on the tombstones in the O’Neill Cemetery was documented in the Periodical of South Texas Genealogical and Historical Society, Gonzales, Texas. The first documentation of the tombstones was made in 1965 and was contained in a privately printed book, Historical Notes on the Leesville Community by John Littlefield Jarratt. He had located eight graves, and took 2 photos of the O’Neill burying ground.

The second recording of the cemetery was done in 1970 by Mrs. Milton Littlefield. She notes that only 5 stones existed and that there were possibly five more unmarked graves there. She also noted that the five stones that were in the cemetery had fallen over and were lying on the ground. The only tombstone of the five documented by both Mr. Jarratt and Mrs. Littlefield is that of Lewis/Louis O’Neill, son of Miles and Martha O’Neill. There are pictures of the gravestones on Find A Grave that were taken by Jason L. Martin in July 2001. The cemetery is located a few hundred yards from O’Neill Creek. There were many years in which rainfall was high and the creek overflowed, possibly destroying many of the tombstones. This could also be why there were so few graves here.
