Brownsboro Cemetery

Brownsboro Cemetery

Comfort
Kendall County, Texas
29 58.386' N 98 49.761' W
Directions: Start at the intersection of FM-473 and River Bend Road. Go 1.8 miles east on River Bend Road. The cemetery is on the left (north) side of the road.

Text: This cemetery served the community of Brownsboro, which was originally settled by shinglemakers. Later, farmers and then railroad workers resided here. Thomas and Sarah Manning donated land for a burial ground and church in 1870; Levi and Sarah Howell later donated additional property. The first known burial was of Henry Bierschwale in 1877. Other notable burials include five veterans of the Civil War. As Brownsboro's population declined and floods damaged the area, the cemetery fell into disuse. Today, the Comfort Heritage Foundation cares for the burial ground, which remains as a memorial to the residents of the former Brownsboro community.
