     Joseph Linscomb (1798-1873) moved from Louisiana to Texas about 1835 and served in a volunteer militia unit during the Texas Revolution. He and his family settled in Jefferson County by 1841. The area became Orange County in 1852. Linscomb deeded one acre of land for use as a family cemetery and his wife Denise (Peveto) became the first person buried here. Descendants and friends also are interred here. Still active, the cemetery contains more than 100 marked graves and some unmarked graves. The site is maintained by family members. (1997)
