Jentsch Cemetery
Jentsch Cemetery

The “Jentsch” ranch was sold many years ago to a family with the last name of “Wolle”. 
About two years ago it was again sold and this time to a developer. 
Today Diane and I drove to the new development (Cordova Bend). 
I had written to the new owners and a man called me letting me know
they had found a cemetery and had built a rock fence around it.  We found it.
Please note that the developer was the one who built the fence.

The cemetery  is located in Comal County.  It is off of Demi John Bend Road. 
One turns into the Cordova Bend subdivision off of Demi John Bend Road (right)
and drives until the road turns into a “T”.  At the “T” turn right.
It is 1/10th of a mile East on the left.  There are four known graves in the cemetery. 

The graves are as follows:

   WEST corner
We are thinking that when the tombstone was made for
Louise it was used even though the last name was misspelled.
