Land for the cemetery was initially deeded by B. J. Arnold in 1883, followed by additional land donations by W. J. Valentine in 1886 and J. C. Mayfield in 1912. A chronicle of the early pioneers and generations of families in this are of Milam County, the cemetery includes graves of fourteen confederate soldiers and two Texas Rangers -- brothers Ellzey and James Perkins. A cemetery association formed in 1958 oversees the care of the site.
