Star Hill Cemetery


Directions:  From New Ulm, go north on Hwy  109 for 2.5 miles.  Then right on New Bremen  road.  Follow road for 3.2 miles.  Turn right  and go .7 miles.  There is a Star Hill Cemetery sign.  Cemetery is on the left side of New Bremen Road.

Please remember that many of the older cemeteries are located on private property. Please respect not only the cemetery but also the owner's rights. Always obtain permission to enter private property.

Note: Carolyn Zascoda has recently supplied new  information and provided corrections to many of these Cemetery files.   Her information is added to the bottom of the file rather than incorporated into  "The Cemeteries of Austin County, Texas" format.   This means that more recent burials are not shown in the original family  groups.   Using the Cemetery Names   CemNames  index you can determine which Cemetery was used, or you can  use Control F to find the particular grave in the files below...but not in reference to  adjacent graves.

PLEASE CHECK the Cemetery Index page as the below table may not be complete.
