Linked toWilliam Crnkovic, Sr.

New Tabor Cemetery, Caldwell, Burleson, Texas, United States

Notes: New Tabor was settled by Czech and German immigrants in the 1870s and 1880s. It was named for the community of Tabor in Czechoslovakia. In February 1888, Henry Ginzel Sold 31/4 acres of land for a cemetery to trustees F. Jurcak, G. Hnilica and J. Skribanek. The first recorded burial was that of Infant Jan Skrabanek in July 1888; the first adult burial was that of Martin Fojt, who died in October 1888. A number of graves are those of infants and children, attesting to the often harsh conditions of pioneer life. The many who died in 1919 may have been victims of the influenza epidemic. More than 35 military veterans are interred here, with more than 841 graves, the cemetery continues to serve the descendants of New Tabor's pioneer settlers.
