In 1929, at the request of Clarence Winder, Mr. J.B. Dulin donated ten acres of land to be known as Gruver Memorial Park, now Gruver Cemetery. Additional acreage was added by Cecil and Margaret Ralston in 1970. On March 9, 1929, Willie A. Winder, Clarence's mother, became the first person buried in the cemetery.
