The Delta County Library sell a collection of cemetery books, "Voices in the Wind: The Cemetery Records of Delta County Texas".  This project was complied by Judy Falls and Sylvia Wood.  These books are a real tribute to all the Delta County citizens that worked together to preserve the cemetery records of Delta County.  Several of the 1997 Cooper High School students canvased the cemeteries and recorded the tombstones.  Others within the community that contributed are the former Sheriff, Benny Fisher, former Delta County Commissioner, Mickey Goforth; Don Woodward; Edna Ruth Roan; and Doris Alley and many others.   The following Delta County cemetery associations mentioned include: Oak Lawn Cemetery Association, Pecan Gap Cemetery Association, Lake Creek Cemetery Association and the East Delta Cemetery Association. The proceeds from the sale of these books support the library, the only secure repository for Delta County historical records.  If you decide to purchase any books from the library, please let the librarian know that you located the booklist at the Rootsweb site.
May 2008—Update Judy Falls and her group are putting together another cemetery book, to include unmarked graves. This will be a wonderful addition to a great study on Delta County. Keep posted for the publication release date.
There are five books:
Oaklawn and New Home
The 'East End' Cemeteries
The 'North Side" Cemeteries
The 'South Side' Cemeteries
