Leon Valley in Bexar County, Texas — The American South (West South Central)
Evers Family Cemetery
Claus (1817-1900) and Johanna (1818-1905) Evers and their children Christian (1847-1915) and Christina (1850-1914) came to Texas from Schleswig-Holstein, Germany in 1855. They moved here in 1874. This cemetery began on their farm in 1877, when a woman traveling through the area became ill and died at the Evers home. The first family member buried here was Anna Wehmeyer, infant child of the Evers daughter Christina Evers Wehmeyer Braendle. Several generations of Evers and Braendle descendants are buried here. The cemetery stands as a reminder of the area's pioneer heritage.
