Episcopal Church of the Ascension Cemetery
Also known as: Church of the Ascension Cemetery
Montell
Uvalde County
Texas  USA

Cemetery notes and/or description:
The Episcopal Church of the Ascension has a stained glass window, donated by the estate of John Jacob Astor.

MONTELL, TEXAS.30 Miles NW of Uvalde
Once the site of the Nuestra Señora de la Candelaria del Cañón Spanish Mission, the community can be found where the Nueces River meets Montell Creek.

The namesake, Charles S. DeMontel, was a Texas surveyor sent to map the valley. He camped here on his trip and left his name behind. A few Anglo families settled in the valley in the late 1870s, including the family of John Baylor, the self-appointed Confederate governor of the Arizona Territory during the Civil War. Baylor is buried in the local cemetery. A post office was granted in 1879.

From a population of 75 in the 1920s, the community declined until only ten remained.
