On January 15, 1918, Robert and Maggie Nickels deeded to the County Judge and his successors in office of the county of Dickens and State of Texas, for one hundred dollars paid by the citizens of McAdoo, two acres of land to be used as a cemetery. It is located one mile west and one half mile south of McAdoo on County Road 103.

In October 1918 Mamie Lee Smith, three month old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George Smith, passed away and was the first person buried in the cemetery.

Section C of the cemetery was donated by Denzil & Jean McMillan of Plainview. The piping and cable was donated by Bill & Helen Swaringen of Brownfield. Flagpole donated by Damon Stotts. Gravel was put down by the county, and the area cleared, leveled, filled, entrance sign and chain across front installed and painted from donations to the McAdoo Cemetery Association.

The McAdoo Cemetery is maintained and cared for by the McAdoo Cemetery Association:
Donald Harris - President

**Note-Charles Alton Allen was our father, and as a young man, he lost his arm to a gunshot wound in a hunting accident. Granny Allen buried that arm in the McAdoo Cemetery. I couldn't say for sure, but I believe it may be located at #77 N-6 (orginal no.). Charlie died September 18, 1985 and is buried in Kaufman, County, Texas, near Maybank, along side his wife, Velma Gladys Dillon who died in April, 1991
