History

On Oct. 15, 1872, the Rev. James A. Steger (1831-1902) deeded this site to trustees of the Hickory Grove Methodist Church for use as a community burial ground. Steger, a Civil War veteran, may have used it as a family cemetery before that date. The Methodist sanctuary was located north of the cemetery and a later building, at the northwest corner, was used for funerals and school classes. The church eventually disbanded, but this cemetery, the burial place of several pioneer families, remains as evidence of the area's early settlement. Texas Sesquicentennial 1836 - 1986. - Historical Marker Text.  Marker erected 1986.
