Coats Family Cemetery
This section provides information about the graves in the Coates (Coats) family cemetery in Bastrop County, Texas, near the site of the Lower Elgin Road bridge. Because the bridge is located on/adjacent to property that was owned by William Coats at the time that the bridge was built, the bridge history research includes information about the Coats family. In a conversation with Steve Rivers, the great, great, great grandson of William and Sarah Coats, Rivers explained that William and Sarah Coats were also originally buried in the Coats family cemetery and were later moved to the Elgin cemetery (Rivers 2015).
Additional information about the family members buried in the Coats family cemetery is available in this table. (a .pdf file will open in a new window).
