The pioneer Houston family built its first home just southeast of this location. It was customary in those days of the nineteenth century to bury the dead on the family property, thus this cemetery was established in 1883 when 27 year old Samuel Houston died on February 17, 1883.

The first settlers, John C. Houston (July 18, 1813 to Nov. 22, 1885) and Mary Virginia Houston (Feb. 19, 1823 to Feb. 13, 1894) are buried here as well as other family members and the children of the Braddock, Roesch, and Young families. The Houston daughters had married into these families.
