The History of The Stonewall Mexican Cemetery.
    Originally granted to Justa Flores (Justina). She bought the acre of land out of survey No 12, and being out of 207 acres.  It was recorded to Justa Flores on December 19, 1905.  Matias Correon, Mariano Venzor, Esteban Martinez, Vital Flores, and Juan Cortez purchased that same acre of land.   They purchased it from Christian Hahn for $75.00 and it was to be used as a cemetery.   It was recorded on February 20, 1916.  The cemetery was never given a name, everyone referred to it as The Stonewall Mexican Cemetery.
    For year Joann Arriaga and her husband Santiago Najera  have taken care of the cemetery.
