Directions & Map for Anton Hoelscher Sr. Gravesite and Historical Marker

Friday June 9, 2006 a Historical Marker was dedicated marking the Gravesite of Anton Hoelscher Sr. (GPS 29.851156, -96.678233)

The Hoelscher- Buxkemper Family Association provided the funds and with work of the committee of Leonard Buxkemper, Henry Hoelscher, Jr., Doris Voltin, and Carolyn Meiners Heinsohn it became a reality.  This marker was stolen a few years after it was placed and never recovered.
