Search Johann Georg Cemetery:

This cemetery is an old small family cemetery holding the earliest generation of Georg immigrants to Comal County, as well as a few of their descendants. It is located in an isolated area surrounded by private land just west of Stahl Lane on the north bank of Lewis Creek, about three-quarters of a mile south of Hwy-46. The Comal County Appraisal District identifies it as "Georg Heirs Cemetery" owned by the heirs, with property ID# 4763. The Comal County Genealogy Society booklet "Lest We Forget" lists it on page 130 (a different version is on page 3) as "The Johann Georg Cemetery", with 9-10 graves inventoried at that time. The cemetery is rectangular in shape, bordered with a cast-iron fence around 6 apparent graves, although 3 children's graves lie outside the fence. A cemetery marker is shown at this location on the county map series published by the Texas Dept. Of Transportation, although it is not labeled with a name. The GNIS list of cemeteries for Comal County lists a "Grave Cemetery" with coordinates almost identical to this cemetery; however, examination of the original USGS map reveals that separate close-by markers are found for items labeled as "Grave" and "Cem", such that a casual examination might be read as one item "Grave Cem". In fact, the "Cem" marker (a small square) is for the "Johann Georg Cemetery". A separate marker (a cross symbol) appears to mark the location of a separate "Grave" just to the northwest.
