Concan Cemetery - Uvalde County, Texas


The Concan Cemetery is located about a mile northeast of the Frio River outside of the small community of Concan in Uvalde County. It is a fairly small cemetery but one of my childhood friends and several generations of his ancestors are buried there so we recently made a stop there as we were returning from a visit to Lost Maples Natural Area and Garner State Park.

From information on the markers at his gravesite, William H. Robinson was a Texas Ranger during the indian wars on the Texas frontier. Census records list William H. Robinson as born in Texas in 1856, the son of Henry M. and Eva Robinson of South Carolina. It appears that he and his wife, Alice E. Smith, did not have children.
