Note: The information listed has been gathered from various sources, includes cemeteries which no longer exist, and is all that I know about each.

The Dallas Library has a book called Old Cemeteries of Dallas Countycompiled by Willie Flowers Carlisle, Dallas 1948, R929.37642, C.2830 in both their Genealogy and Texas Collections. I have listed the cemeteries named therein and noted a few comments, however, each of these cemeteries contains a list of graves, though many are not complete lists. I do not have this book, just looked at it, though the librarian in the Texas Section on the 7th floor may be able to help you - 214-670-1700. Those cemeteries listed in this book are marked with an *

Also, there is additional information on these cemeteries and additional cemetery listings at Jim Wheat's Cemetery Information Pages
