     Wilson, John, and Sam McCrury and their two sisters arrived in this area from Missouri in 1835. A private family burial ground was begun on the land of John McCrury upon his death in 1864. Although there are probably earlier burials here, his is the oldest documented grave. The cemetery became a community graveyard for the people of the McCrury area of Red River County. Many pioneer families are represented here. Officially designated as a cemetery in county deed records in 1953, the graveyard is maintained by the McCrury Cemetery Association.
