    The cemetery originated in 1910 when the youngest child of the loveless family was buried under a large live oak tree on the home section of the ranch.  One acre was fenced as a cemetery and in the intervening years it has acquired 43 graves from the families of area ranchers and/or employees who had expressed a desire to be buried there.  it is surrounded by a strong chain link fence, and is cared for by descendants of those families represented, many of whom will be buried there.
