    John Hunt (1814 - 1853) and Nancy Allard (1813 - 1911) came to Texas from Missouri in 1849. Married in 1850, they gave land for a grave site when a neighbor child, Eliza Armstrong, died in 1852. John Hunt was the second person buried at the site. Joel J. Hunt (1851 - 1933), son of John and Nancy, and his wife, Joan Morgan Looney Hunt (1857 - 1924), formally deeded the land for the cemetery in 1878. The terms of the deed stated that it would be a public burial ground, with no charge for plots. The Klondike Cemetery Association, established in 1960, provides perpetual care for the graveyard.
