This burial ground is part of 600 acres purchased for use as a poor farm operated by Kaufman County beginning in 1883. It is the final resting place for some of Kaufman County's citizens who were poor farm residents, county jail inmates, paupers, transients and other indigents. It is believed that anonymous victims of an 1871 typhoid fever epidemic were the first to be interred at this site, but the earliest marked grave is that of poor farm inmate George McCorkin, who died the year it opened. Though many graves remain unmarked, the cemetery is a place of final dignity for those whose names remain among those now forgotten.
