Davenport Cemetery

Davenport Cemetery
The first burial in Davenport Cemetery was Mary Ware Davenport in 1852. Mary was the wife of William Davenport, born in Virginia in 1820, who had come to Texas in 1843. The cemetery is on land that was part of a ranch they purchased on Cibolo Creek in 1851. In 1853, William married Nancy Young, daughter of John Young, who had served in the War of 1812. The cemetery is located just beyond the city limits of San Antonio.
