Historical Marker
     Once named Miller's Mill, the community served by this cemetery was settled in the early 19th century. When a post office was established in 1898, the name Libby was chosen for the postmaster's daughter. The first burial on this site is believed to have taken place in 1898 when infant Bessie Patterson died. The first marked grave is dated 1900. Also buried here is Civil War veteran Thomas Farrell. Born in Ireland in 1845, Farrell was enlisted in the Vermont Infantry of the Union Army from 1862-1863. He moved to Texas in 1877, marrying Elizabeth Mary Lewis in that year. Elizabeth and five of their eleven children also are interred here. Families of those buried on this site began organized maintenance in about 1918. The cemetery remains a record of Libby pioneers. (1999)
