The families of Oliver (1812-1872) and Mary  (Livingston) Jackson (1818-1890) and George  (1823-1906) and Didama (Jackson) Biggerstaff (1835-1902) moved here from Missouri and settled on adjoining farms in 1854. The Jacksons erected a schoolhouse on their property and this cemetery was established on the Biggerstaff farm. 
The first recorded burial here was that of Grant Clutter in 1864. The cemetery, which contains about 50 burials, served as the graveyard for the Jackson  and Biggerstaff families and their descendants. The last recorded burial was that of Russell McCormack in 1935.  Sesquicentennial of Texas Statehood 1845 - 1995
