Historical Marker
    Soon after Moody was founded in 1881, area settlers developed plans for a community burial ground closer than the cemetery at the Old Perry townsite (2.5 mi. Ne). Purchased from J. Parker Naylor, the original tract at this site was first used for the burial of Flora Welch (d. 1889), a 7 year-old girl. Hackberry trees here were transplanted from the banks of the nearby Leon river in 1890. A woman's federation, later the Moody Cemetery Association, was started in 1929 and Miss Rob McCauley served as president for 35 years. Many early pioneers of Moody are buried here.
