Lewisville in Denton County, Texas — The American South (West South Central)
The McCurley family of Illinois settled in Denton County in 1852. George Collins McCurley set aside land for a burial ground, church, and school. A traveling stranger may have been the first burial, but George's brother, Abraham, who died in 1871, was the first family member buried at the site. The first marked graves date from 1877, when the plot began to be used by neighbors. In 1951 the 106 graves which then comprised the cemetery had to be relocated because of the construction of Lewisville lake. They were moved here, adjoining Old Hall Cemetery, burial place of George C. McCurley.
Erected 1984 by Texas Historical Commission. (Marker Number 3288.)
