Boerne City Cemetery

From the inscriptions on gravestones in the Boerne City Cemetery in Kendall County, Texas, it appears that the town was populated by a diverse mixture of immigrants in the latter part of the 19th century. There are gravestones that indicate the deceased was born in Scotland, Ireland, Germany, Cambridgeshire in England and numerous other locations. But for James Conley, there is no clue to his origins or even a date of birth and I wonder what the duty was that took his life.
