Pearce - Pierce Cemetery
Gonzales County

Tombstone Photographs

Otine, Texas, on private property off of Salt Lake Rd. The Karnstad family owned the land in the 1910's to 1920. There are no Karnstads buried there. This cemetery was once large - the area is very uneven. There are stones that are unmarked that I found still standing. Also, there are probably headstones under the ground. There are only four visible headstones left, and a portion of another one. I have located these families in the census in 1880 - Gonzales Co., ED 70 - pages 491B and 492A.
