Historical Marker: An 1845 land grant brought pioneers to this area and it is believed that at least some of the graves here marked with only a rock or a post are from those early years
of settlement. The oldest dated gravestone is that of a 13-year-old boy, J.I. Jones (1872-1885). Honored in this burial ground are veterms of the Civil War, World War I, World War II,
Korea and Vietnam, alongside the citizens that setled this area and have contributed to its history and development. The Sycamore Cemetery continies to serve the community and is
maintaned and care for by an association through the donatinos of descendants. Historic Texas Cemetery-2000
