Historic Texas CemeteryThis cemetery dates to the early days of Cottle County, which was formally organized in 1892. The oldest marked grave, that of infant Cyrenia Rickard, dates to the same year. In 1906, the Paducah Ladies Cemetery Association began raising money to fence what was then known as Paducah Cemetery. In 1907, J.B. and Delia Earp formally conveyed land for the burial ground, and it has been enlarged over the years with additional acquisitions. Also in 1907, a cemetery association formed with Judge J.H. Doolen as chairman.
