Sachse Texas History:
In 1846, widow Elizabeth Straly received a land grant of 320 acres in the Peters colony. She later married Prussian William C. Sachse. In 1886, Sachse donated land for the right-of-way to the Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fe Railway in exchange for naming rights. The Saxie post office was established that same year. In 1892 it was renamed Sachse. Sachse incorporated in 1956 with 250 residents. Its proximity to Garland and to Lavon and Ray Hubbard contributes to the town’s growth. Sachse is located at the intersection of SH 78 and CR 238 (Dewitt Road), approximately 2 miles west of Lake Ray Hubbard, 4 miles southwest of Lavon Lake, 35 miles northeast of Grapevine and Lake Grapevine, 25 miles northeast of Dallas, 5.6 miles northeast of Garland, 30 miles southeast of Lewisville and Lake Lewisville ,10 miles southeast of Plano, 24 miles south of McKinney, 4.4 miles southwest of Wylie, 35 miles northwest of Quinlan and Lake Tawakoni, and 22 miles north of Mesquite, Texas.
Historic William Sachse Cemetery, Texas Historical Marker Text:
William Sachse, a native of Prussia, arrived in nearby Collin County in 1845 as a Peters' colonist. He became a successful businessman, rancher, and trader, and participated in several cattle drives to Kansas. His business successes over time allowed him to acquire more than 5000 acres of land in Collin and Dallas Counties. In 1886, Sachse gave some of this land to the Gulf, Colorado & Santa Fe Railroad for a railway line and townsite. The community that grew up around the railroad was named Sachse in his honor. Sachse moved his family to the new town and soon set aside two acres of land for a church and this cemetery. The graveyard has been used throughout its history as a public burial ground. The oldest marked grave, that of William Sachse, is dated 1899. Sachse's second wife, Martha (Frost), a number of their descendants, as well as many early settlers and their descendants also are buried here. Some of the family names recorded here are Salmon, Herring, Ingram, House, Harper, and Brand. The William Sachse Cemetery, with its ties to early settlement in this part of the state, is an important reminder of the area's heritage. The marker is located at the corner of 6th and Sachse Streets.
