| Joseph and Mary Jane (Dusenbury) Thurman came to this part of Edwards county in 1882. In 1885, Mary Jane was the first to be buried in what became the Thurman Family Cemetery. Grave markers record infant deaths and victims of typhoid and other diseases that plagued the pioneers. Members of the Thurman, Self, Ellis, Donaghe, Parham, Maddux, Quigg, Loden, Fulkerson, Wilkerson, Chapman, Lazerine, Wallace, Bolding, and Remley families are buried in the 29 gravesites. Last used in 1958, the cemetery is maintained by Thurman family descendants. (1985) |
