Historical Marker
     John and William Lewis settled in the LaGrange area in the 1830s and established a family cemetery here. The earliest marked grave is that of Carl Huebner in 1857. John and Ann Lewis donated 1.25 acres of land for the cemetery in 1879. All records were kept in German until 1931 \, and German cultural influences are evident on many tombstones. The site became a community cemetery, and the name was changed three times. Burials include veterans of the war for Texas independence, the Civil War, World War I, World War II and the Korean War. (1997)
