Crosbyton Cemetery History
Crosby County, Crosbyton, Texas


In 1909 when James Boggs, one of the -N- cowboys became ill and was thought to be "dying", Julian Bassett had the Crosbyton cemetery laid off. T.J.Walling, foreman, Buck Creamer, and J.P.Goins did the work. However, Boggs did not die. The first person buried at the Crosbyton cemetery was Willie Oliver, eighteen month old daughter of Mrs. Laura Oliver. She was buried on the north side where a small wooden fence enclosed the grave.

A special "Thank You" to Bettye Odom who has contributed a lot of hours in the location of graves, verifying names, dates and burial locations. Not to mention proofreading all my typing, this site has a lot to offer because of her dedication.
