Text from the Historic Texas Cemetery Marker:

CESKO NARODNI HRBITOV
The Cechomorovan Lodge No. 105 formed in Ellinger in 1884 as part of the national Cesko-Slovanska Podporujici Spolecnost (C.S.P.S.) fraternal society, which offered benefits to Czech immigrants. In 1897, the Ellinger lodge joined other Texas lodges in a new group the Slovanska Podporujici Jednota Statu Texas (Slavonic Benevolent Order of the State of Texas), or S.P.J.S.T. The Cesko Narodni Hrbitov, or Czech National Cemetery, was later called Ellinger National Cemetery. It served as the burial ground for early Czech settlers, including Thomas Hruska, C.S.P.S. member, and charter member and first president of the S.P.J.S.T. Lodge #1. - 2000

The site is located outside the city limits of Ellinger on Farm to Market Road 2503. It is small and well kept. Contact Lillie Mae Brightwell for more information.
