Keenan Cemetery Endowed Recently

The Farmers Branch (Keenan) Cemetery Association has recently completed a four room residence situated on a lot donated for a building site at Farmers Branch. The rentals from this property will be used for the general upkeep of the cemetery.
During the past three years, a permanent fund has been created by donations from friends and lot owners. In 1938 the organization secured a charter from the Secretary of State at Austin and since has operated as a corporation.
The cemetery is nearly a hundred years old, dating back to the days when the community was a unprotected wilderness. Recently, under the supervision of the Federal Government a Civil War marker for a Confederate soldier was placed in the Cemetery. Burial space is still available.
The trustees are unanimous in their gratitude for the hearty cooperation the project has received. At the annual meeting held last Sunday afternoon the following officers were elected: President, Floyd May, Farmers Branch; Vice Presidents, . P. Echols, Farmers Branch, Mrs. F. P. Caillet, Dallas and Ben Johnston, Farmers Branch; and Miss Mary Johnston, Secretary Treasurer
