1. Chilipitin Cemetery Marker
Inscription. Early settlers Dario and Manuelita Douglas Tober acquired land here in 1877 and later set aside this site for a family cemetery. The oldest marked grave, that of teenager Nieves Douglas Tober, dates to 1903. The Tober family deeded the original tract to the Chilipitin Cemetery Association in 1910, and the site has been enlarged and used as a burial ground for the Miguel community and surrounding areas of Atascosa and Frio counties. The cemetery features curbed plots, highly decorated graves, religious iconography and an arched entryway in a South Texas prairie setting.
