2006 Transcription Notes: In the notebook of the 1987 typed transcription of the New Braunfels Cemetery Sexton records covering the period 1917-1957 the format and content changed considerably from the August 1873 - July 1917. The introductory paragraphs have been transcribed for electronic format without change. The content has been modified only to replace ditto information with actual words or numbers for database purposes and to replace NB with New Braunfels for clarity without risk of blurring the historic record. Note that although the pages from the 1987 transcription as well as the document the transcription was made from are numbered sequentially, the content is roughly ordered by grave site number and not chronologically by date of interment. The introductory remarks in the 1987 transcription provide some explanation.

New Braunfels, Comal County, Texas

The following are names of people listed by the City Sexton for burial between July 1917 and December 1957 in Old new Braunfels Cemetery, New Braunfels, Comal County, Texas. It is located where Highway 81 and IH 35 meet Southwest side of new Braunfels. these names do not appear in our previously published cemetery records because there are no readable headstones for these graves or it was overlooked. Sometimes the Sexton Records give you more information than the headstone. Always cover every angle in searching for information.

THESE NAMES ARE LISTED by pages as they appear in the SEXTON'S BOOK, WHICH IS IN THE Sexton's Office at the back of the COMAL CEMETERY, Peace Avenue and Common Streets.
