This is an old small family cemetery, now located in a modern subdivision on the shores of Canyon Lake. It has been set aside as Waterfront Park Lot 242 (Comal County property ID# 377274), containing 2 graves in a fenced area, for Michael Heimer and his 2nd wife. It is next to a residence at 2556 Waterfront Park Drive. It is reached from FM-2673 at Startzville by taking Canyon Bend Drive and then Westview Drive and then turning left onto Waterfront Park Drive. It is a different cemetery than another Heimer Cemetery, which is located a few miles away on South Cranes Mill Road, which contains his son Franz and wife. In efforts to avoid confusion, Michael's cemetery is sometimes referred to as the "Michael Heimer Cemetery". The Comal County Genealogy Society booklet "Lest We Forget" published in 1989 lists this cemetery on page 94 as "Heimer Cemetery", indicating that 2 graves were inventoried at that time.
The original gravestones had decayed, and were replaced with modern stones by descendants in about 1989. Unfortunately, a mistake was made in the name for Gustina Heinig on her stone, as it was her daughter Augusta's married name that was Schmidt. Her maiden name was Heinig, and was married twice (to Leitsch, and then Heimer).
This cemetery has been registered as a Historic Texas Cemetery (CM-C086), a designation by the Texas Historical Commission. A formal dedication ceremony was held on 20-May-2018 to unveil the new marker.
