Mager (1863-1930), a native of Brandenburg, Germany, came to Texas and married
Franziska Krueger (1868-1951), a native of the Dessau community in nearby Travis
County, Texas. The Magers donated one acre of their 150 acres of land here in
Williamson County for this cemetery and a school. The first known burial, that
of Albert C. Mager, took place in 1900. Many of the tombstones bear inscriptions
in German, and 14 mark the graves of infants. Burials in the cemetery ceased
after the interment of Franziska Mager in 1951. The 55 known grave sites are
testament to the area's 20th-century German heritage. (2000)
