Brazos County: Moravian Czech at Bryan
5910 Knightsbridge Ln.
Bryan, TX 77802 USA
Historical Marker for Moravian (Czech) Cemetery
Land for this cemetery was sold in 1889 by Josef Stasta (1833-1894) to Joseph Mekeska, President of Moravian Brothers Burial Ground. The deed specified the land would be used exclusively for a Moravian cemetery. The cemetery contains eleven grave markers. All but one of the stones are inscribed in Czech. The one English-language stone marks four graves. The earliest known burial is that of Marie Siptak (Jan. 19-Feb. 16, 1885). The last interment took place in 1906. Though only fifteen graves are marked, the cemetery may contain as many as forty-one burials.
