Joseph Pivoto (1811-1876) came to Texas in the 1830s and worked as a rancher. He married Seraphine Anna Dubois (1797-1901) and moved his family here in 1848, building a house nearby. This small family cemetery began with the death of Joseph Pivoto in 1876. The Pivotos' granddaughter married Frank Robinson in 1901. Pivoto and Robinson family members are buried here along with friends. It is believed that some unmarked graves also exist. The site is owned and maintained by descendants of Joseph Pivoto who have restored the family home and the cemetery.
