Historical Marker
     Kentucky native Michael Boren and his second wife, Mary Ann (Ridgeway) moved to this part of Texas with their children and slaves in 1847. Hers is believed to be among the earliest graves in Boren Cemetery, as she died in 1857, but 1868 is the earliest death date recorded on a stone marker. It belongs to Sidney T. Boren, the five-year-old grandson of Michael and his first wife, Bettie (Morrow). Boren and his son George donated land for this cemetery for the use of the Reagor Springs and Bethel communities. A reflection of the area's history, it contains the graves of numerous military veterans and members of Ellis county pioneer families. (2001)
