The Kirby Chapel Cemetery is located in Waller County, TX just a couple of miles north of Prairie View University and about five miles SW of the Fields Store community along FM 1488. Francis Christian Jahn, both of his wives and many of his descendants are buried at Kirby Chapel Cemetery.

According to family tradition, Francis Christian “Frank” Jahn was a medical doctor and practiced medicine in Waller County, Texas. I am trying to locate any of Dr. Jahn’s living descendants or relatives. Could your William Christian Jahn be a descendant or collateral relative of Dr. Jahn? The common thread here may be the middle name “Christian”. Dr. Jahn’s father was named Christian Gottlieb Jahn.
