     Andrew A. (1816-1898) and Mary Barnes (1817-1857) McKee came to Texas in 1845 and purchased land here in 1854. Mary, who died in childbirth, was the first person buried here. According to local tradition, just prior to her death Mary marked this site for family burials with her footprint on a gopher mound. By 1865 the cemetery served the Midway community and the surrounding area. Buried here are pioneer settlers and their descendants, former slaves, and veterans of conflicts from the Civil War to the Vietnam War. The cemetery is maintained by an association.
