    Ireland Cemetery This site was once the family burial plot for the Daniel Webster (D.W.) Edwards family. The first marked grave is for his one-year-old son, Sterling P. Edwards, dating to October 1873. Several stones indicate other unmarked graves. Edwards settled in Texas after his Civil War regiment, the 11th Missouri Infantry, disbanded while in Texas in 1865. The next year, he married the widowed Elizabeth Moore Roberts. In 1871, he purchased land in this area, and his parents, Micajah and Matilda (Poor), later moved here from Missouri. Other family members who came include Allison Micajah Edwards, William P. and his wife, Eliza Jane (Faubion) Edwards, and several Faubion family members. In this community, D.W. and Elizabeth reared her two children and children of their own, including Daniel Lee Edwards, who, in 1920, donated the graveyard to the Ireland Cemetery Association. Early families interred here represent the cultures, occupations and customs of the community. Family names include Austin, Coston, Davis, Dooley, Faubion, Hampton, Huckabee, Hull, Kight, Laing, Lovelace, Neyland, Oldham, Pearson, Pietzsch, Taylor, Tyler, Walker, Williams, Walsleben and Wilson.
