Historical Marker
    Land for this one-acre family cemetery (3.5 mi. S) was donated by John Robin Heard (1794-1866), who came to Texas in 1853 and founded the nearby town of Cussetta. First burial occurred in 1861 after the death of Cornelius Floyd (b. 1859), Heard's grandson. The 23 graves include those of Heard and his second wife, Mary Hopkins Heard (1806-1863). The cemetery fence was provided by another of Heard's grandsons, W. Q. Henderson (1858-1934). Descendants formed a cemetery association in 1974 and organized a perpetual care trust fund.
