Noll Cemetery

Noll Cemetery

Mission Valley
Victoria County, Texas
28 52.260' N 97 15.342' W
Directions: Start at the intersection of Noll Road and FM-237. Go 150 yards north on FM-237. The marker is on the right (east) side of the road.

Historical Marker: Valentin Noll (1816-1882), a German immigrant, purchased land in the C.W. Vickery survey before 1860. In 1893 his eldest son Joseph (1848-1938) deeded two acres for a free community school, built with the help of Ben Arnold, Joseph Dentler, Otto Dentler, Fred Diebel and Joe Preiss. One acre became a cemetery, opened with the burial of Jacob Dentler (1825-1894), a German settler in the Mission Valley area. The plot contains 17 graves, including those of Dentler, Noll and Preiss family members. The one-room school building was removed from this site in 1919.
