Historical Marker
     Stephen G. and Keziah Albright Box came to Texas from Alabama with their children in 1826. The Stephen Box land grant was deeded in April 1835, and the family set aside the acreage around this site for a burial ground. The earliest known burial is that of Dicy Box Hallmark (1807-1837), daughter of Stephen and Keziah Box and the wife of San Jacinto veteran William Calvert Hallmark. James Bynum, the widower of Margaret (Polly) Box, purchased the site in 1852, and it became known as Bynum Cemetery. Bynum conveyed the land to his grandsons in 1885, and it remained in the family at the dawn of the 21st century. The cemetery includes graves of veterans of the Civil War, Spanish- American War, World War I, World War II and the Korean War.
