Vogelsang Cemetery
Ben Arnold, Milam County, Texas

Lat: 30° 57' 42"N, Lon: 96° 56' 14"W

Contributed by Clarissa Loyd, Apr 17, 2006 [marvclar1@cox.net]. Total Records = 122.

Directions to the Vogelsang Cemetery from Cameron: Travel on Hwy 77 (north-bound), pass intersection of FM 485 & Hwy 77, then go to Ben Arnold. At Ben Arnold there will be an old gas station, turn right onto FM 1444 and continue for about 5 miles. On the second hill and second bridge, the sign, Vogelsang Cemetery, this turn will be on the left. Turn onto CR 137 for about 3 tenths of a mile and the cemetery will be on the left, park right across from the cemetery.

The Vogelsang Cemetery is located between Cameron, Milam County & Rosebud, Falls County. The Vogelsang Community is actually in Ben Arnold.

Right across the cemetery is where Augusta Schwarting-Vogelsang (wife of Frederick (Fritz) Vogelsang) erected a church for the Vogelsang Community, it was torn down in the 1960s, the scrap lumber from this church was sent to Ben Arnold along with some lumber from a church in Burlington to build a church in Ben Arnold. In the area just across the road (grassy area to park), the steps to the old Voglesang Community School still rests.

The Vogelsang Cemetery is now maintained by The Church of Christ Cemetery Association. The Vogelsang Cemetery is in very good condition as it is maintained every month.

I have transcribed from all existing and legible stones, when I walked the cemetery in Feb of 2002, updated Feb 12, 2006.
