Historical Marker
     This cemetery first served the area's pioneer settlers. In use before the Civil War and before the founding of Springtown, it was included in land patented to Mary Leonard in 1859. The site was later conveyed to the Springtown Methodist Church, and the congregation worshiped in an adjacent log cabin for many years. The earliest legible gravestone is that of J.E. Arrington, who died in 1854. The original cemetery tract was enlarged in 1901 with a donation of land from local businessmen J.A. Kidd and A.J. Cunningham. Texas Sesquicentennial 1836-1986.
