Inscription.  

The Pioneer-North Llano cemetery was established on this site 500 feet from the North Llano River across from the Speer Homestead. The earliest burials are unmarked, but it is recorded that Sam Speer was buried here in 1876 beside his mother Elizabeth (McAllister) (1822- 1876). In 1878 Thomas Doran was interred after a gunfight in a Junction City saloon; his is the earliest head stone of the 58 graves, many bear veterans' markers. The last person interred here was Andrew Jackson Wilson (1847-1916). Now owned by the City of Junction, the cemetery continues to be an important link to the 19th century and its people.
 
Erected 1998 by Texas Historical Commission. (Marker Number 15208.)
