    Sam Young (1814-1891) and Patience Cornell Young (1814-1847) came to Collin county from Illinois in 1842. More Illinois settlers came to the area in 1845. Young bought land from the Baccus Land survey and founded a school on his property. He established this cemetery when Patience died in 1847. Eleven pioneer families are represented in the 51 known graves: Abbott, Baccus, Bankston, Crenshaw, Dennard, Finley, Jackson, McConnell, McQuerry, Teel and Young. Veterans buried here are Thomas Finley, who served in the War of 1812, and Jacob P. Houts and Jacob Baccus, Jr., who fought in the Civil War. (1996)

The cemetery is inside.
