Manor in Travis County, Texas — The American South (West South Central)
Joseph J. Manor Cemetery
Joseph J. Manor (1818-1884) came to Texas from Tennessee at age twenty, settling finally in Webberville, where he acquired land and opened a store and cotton gin. He married Caroline Scott (1830-1851) in 1847; both are laid to rest here, as are other early area pioneers. Veterans of the War of 1812, the Texas Revolution, the Mexican War, Indian conflicts, the Civil War, World War I, World War II, Korea and Vietnam are buried and honored at this site, some with national markers. An association formed in 1982 oversees the care of this cemetery that records the lives of many area settlers and their descendants.
