Pioneers Rest Cemetery is Fort Worth's oldest community cemetery with burials dating back to 1849. It has also been known by other names such as City Cemetery, Old Cemetery, Old City Cemetery and Samuels Avenue Cemetery. It is often confused with Oakwood Cemetery as it was also known as City Cemetery or New City Cemetery in its early days.

This book contains the inscriptions from the headstones and information from the sexton's records, plus selected obituaries, biographies and photographs.
