Historical Marker
    The Mitchell Bend of the Brazos River and this area of Hood County are named for an early settler, Nelson Cooney Mitchell. He was convicted of a murder arising out of a feud with the Truett Family in 1874 and was hanged one year later. Mitchell is buried in this cemetery, as are many other pioneer settlers and their descendants. The earliest marked grave is that of one year old James Earnest, who died in November 1872. According to local tradition, however, some of the unmarked graves may date to before the civil war.
