Historical Marker
    This cemetery was established to serve the pioneer settlers of the Perry community. The first burial her was that of Jane Leach,a schoolteacher who died in 1854. Perry was the site of several stores, a gin, school, union church, and a post office. Following a destructive 1873 storm, the residents moved to the townsite of New Perry (2 mi E). The settlement was relocated at the present site of Moody (2 mi SW) in 1881 when Santa Fe Rail lines were completed to the area. Only this cemetery remains at the original site of the Perry Community.
