| Lorenzo H. Adams (1849-1912) came to this area from Arkansas after the Civil War. He was elected constable in 1880 and later served as justice of the peace and deputy sheriff. Upon the death of his daughter Georgia Anne (1871-1884), Adams donated one acre including her grave as a public cemetery. Other marked graves from the 1880s include family names of Baker, Goodwin, Kilburn, McNeese, Sikes, Sinclair, and Spears. Burials include veterans of the Civil War and World Wars I and II. Adams and his second wife, Naomi Lawrence Jay Adams (1872-1963), are buried here with many of their descendants. Texas Sesquicentennial 1836 - 1986 |
