George (1823-1906) and Didama (Jackson) Biggerstaff (1835-1902) moved

erected a schoolhouse on their property and this cemetery was established
on the Biggerstaff farm.

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
