Wahnschaffe Cemetery
Comal County,

This cemetery is located between Oasis St. and Churchill Drive in New Braunfels, just south of Hwy-46/Loop 337. In 1984, it was cleaned up as an Eagle Scout project, and was found fenced at that time but no individual gravestones were present. It is reported to hold an immigrant couple, Johann Heinrich & Dorothea Elizabeth Wahnschaffe, along with two infant Fischer great-grandchildren. A possible fifth unknown grave was also reported in 1984. A visit on 11-Aug-2018 found a heavily disturbed site with only one remaining side fenced, but damaged steel posts or footers in the ground for the other sides, indicating a formerly-fenced area of about 18' x 18'. Four graves were seen with stone curb outlines that has also been partially disturbed. The whole cemetery was in sad state, and badly needs care.
