     This burial ground originated as the private cemetery of the J. C. Anderson family, whose residence stood on a nearby lot. The oldest of the 500 to 700 graves date from the 1830s. Prominent citizens buried here include Col. Stephen William Blount (1808-1890), signer of the Texas Declaration of Independence; Dr. George L. Crocket (1861-1936), Episcopal clergyman and historian; and B. F. Benton (1827-1862), Confederate captain killed in the Civil War. Bought by the city in 1911, the cemetery is maintained by an association formed in 1921.
