Black Jack Springs Cemetery

O' QUINN, FAYETTE COUNTY, TEXAS

Historic Texas Cemetery designation

From the Fayette Heritage Museum & Archives:

This cemetery is located off FM 609 on Black Jack Lane/County Road 134, nine miles southwest of La Grange in the O'Quinn community.

The following is taken from Fayette County Past and Present pgs 324-326: Black Jack Springs, which was established by early Anglo settler had a school and church, but today there is only a cemetery as a reminder of the community.

In the middle 1830's, Anglos settled the land. Then in the 1850's Germans began to move in. Johannes Romberg was the foremost German settler of the area. The town declined and even lost its name in the 1930's.

Two acres were donated for a free and public cemetery on March 4, 1871. Today the cemetery is not connected to any religion or church. The Black Jack Springs Cemetery Associating takes care of the site and Decoration Day is the Sunday after Easter. The oldest marked grave is for Thomas H. Oeding who died 7-28-1867.

Kathy Carter and Helen Muras surveyed this site on 11/3/1986. The death date on Thomas H. Oeding's tombstone was broken away. There are several visible unmarked and unidentifiable graves. [Joe Cole #035W]


Text from Historic Texas Cemetery marker:

Black Jack Springs Cemetery

The Black Jack Springs Community, now called O'Quinn, was established by a group of Anglo and German families who settled near the headwaters of the Black Jack Branch of Buckner's Creek by 1840. Pioneer Charles Luck provided land for the burial of his brother-in-law, Thomas H. Oeding (d. 1867). Oeding's is the first marked grave in this cemetery, which probably first served the Luck-Oeding family. The second known burial is that of Johann Wilhelm (Wil) Loessin (d. 1869), who volunteered with his three brothers as U.S. cavalrymen in the Civil War. Wil died from an illness contracted while held as a prisoner of war at Camp Groce, Liendo Plantation, near Hempstead. Adjoining the cemetery, residents built Trinitatis Lutheran Church in 1871 on land formally deeded by N.W. Faison. Charles Luck donated tracts of land, including the original graveyard, and heirs of Johanetta Luck Froelich Schwartz gave additional land to what became the Black Jack Springs Cemetery. Buried here are soldiers, homesteaders, carpenter craftsmen, and the renown German-Texas poet Johannes C. N. Romberg. The many names found among the stones in the cemetery chronicle the lives of early county settlers and their descendants. Historic Texas Cemetery - 2002
