Old Fowler Cemetery uncovered by Austin Genealogical Society and Mixerr Reviews.

The old Fowler Cemetery was plotted in 1875. Most burials took place here in the 1880s. Several Fowler family members were buried here in the late 19th century and early 20th century. B.R. Fowler was the last person known to be buried at the old Fowler Cemetery. His date of death was July 26, 1920. Infant son of B. R. Fowler was buried here during the same year.

In 1985 this cemetery was all but abandoned. Vegetation such as grass took over along with other natural growth. Today in July 2017, the Fowler Cemetery lay under a canopy of trees that have since grown over looming taking a place of shade for the small cemetery.

Austin Genealogical Society had transcribed and transcripted where they did write down the names and dates of these graves for Austin Genealogical Society’s Cemetery Transcription Project during 2003. This information was compiled by volunteers who either transcribed historical records or visited the cemetery. Fowler Cemetery is one of the many Fowler Cemeteries in Travis County with the name "Fowler Cemetery". There are at least 3 cemeteries that carry the name "Fowler Cemetery" within Travis County.

The address is Buck Lane and Highway 71, Del Valle, Texas, US 78617.
