Yoakum County, Texas
In 1906, W. J. Luna fenced off 5
acres of land for a cemetery on Section 391 near the town of Plains.
Mr. Luna's wife is the first person buried there. In 1957 the Yoakum
County Cemetery Association was organized and 5 more acres of land were donated
by Dr. E.W. Jones, for additional cemetery space. The Cemetery
Association with the help of local officials developed the cemetery into an
attractive burial site. (Source of information: "Yoakum
