Weir Community Cemetery

Texas Historical Commission Marker Number: 12867

Year Dedicated:  2002

Marker Size: Historic Texas Cemetery Medallion & Plate

Marker Text: 

John Breneke (1847-1927) came from Fayette County to purchase 365 acres of farmland here in 1875. Deed records show he set aside two acres for a graveyard, perhaps upon the death of his sister-in-law, Susie B. Kemper (1868-1889), who died in childbirth; her grave is the earliest dated burial in the cemetery. Breneke, a Confederate veteran, is one of many soldiers buried here. The estate of Leola Hugg (1898-1975) added one acre to this site in 1978. This burial ground records the heritage of the area formerly known as Towns’ Mill, Townsville, Prairie Springs and Buffalo Springs.      Historic Texas Cemetery-2002
